USTR submission regarding Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) country practice review of Indonesia

USTR pre-hearing brief for Indonesia Country Practice Review

On, January 17, 2020, Public Citizen submitted written comments to the Office of the United States Trade Representative’s (USTR) hearing on the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) country practice review of Indonesia. Public Citizen, in its brief, urged while explaining USTR that Indonesia’s local working requirements are consistent with the flexibilities within the TRIPS Agreement. The local working requirement can support access to otherwise prohibitively expensive medicines. U.S. trade policy should respect the prerogative.
