In this context, the Switzerland acknowledges the tariff concessions granted by the Philippines (Appendix 1) as a result of bilateral negotiations. These concessions are some products the Switzerland had indicated on 30 November 1978, as being of some interest to export to the Philippines. Therefore, the Switzerland considers them as a significant contribution to the stabilization and liberalization of its trade with the Philippines.
The Switzerland also expects that the discrimination of its export products due to internal sales tax be eliminated as soon as possible.
Please accept, Mr. Ambassador, the assurance of my high consideration.
