Abstract:Generalized preferences are tariff concessions granted by many developed countries to manufactured and semi-manufactured products from developing countries in order to foster their industrial development. The scheme forms part of the current movement aimed at improving North-South relationship by reducing the gap between rich and poor countries, and although discriminatory in nature, has been condoned bu the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. The aim of this paper is to recommend that the South African Republic should similarly offer tariff preferences to manufactured and semi-manufactured products from developing African countries. The case for a South African scheme of Generalized Preferences is presented in three parts: Origin and evolution of generalized preferences - Problems of implementation and assessment of generalized preferences - A South African scheme of generalized preferences.
