[Exerpt] This report contains profiles of 125 independent countries and a summary report on 19 non-independent countries and territories designated as GSP beneficiaries and/or beneficiaries of trade preferences under the AGOA, CBTPA, and ATPA/ATPDEA. In addition, the report includes information on former GSP recipients that have negotiated free trade agreements with the United States, in view of Senate Report 111-66.6

Information in the profiles focuses on the period March 2009 through February 2010. Due to the redesign of the 2009 report and revised release date, important developments that occurred from February through October 2010 are also included. Each country profile contains a table with child labor statistics; a highlights paragraph that notes major steps or remaining problems; five text sections that describe the problem and different aspects of government efforts to address it; a table of information on relevant laws and ratification of international instruments; and a set of suggested actions.
