Editorial Reviews


Services are often overlooked and untapped by developing countries. Yet they are crucial to them. Some services are essential building blocks in the development process, while others offer unique trade opportunities. This book use a wealth of examples to make those important points plain. --Andre Sapir, Professor of Economics, Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management ( ECARES), Universite Libre de Bruxelles

Economists habitually focus disproportionately on merchandise trade, especially when it comes to developing countries. Yet, developing country services trade is rapidly growing, even out pacing the growth in merchandise trade in countries such as India. This indispensable volume not only corrects the existing imbalance in the literature but offers valuable original insights into how developing countries could take advantage of the vast opportunities services trade offers. --Arvind Panagariya , Professor of Economics & Jagdish Bhagwati professor of Indian Political Economy, Columbia University, New York

This is an important step forward in the learning curve of trade in services and developing countries. The book is relevant, among others, to policy makers who seek to implement efficient regulatory frameworks that allow the provision of services in competitive markets, particularly in the context of the fragmentation of production processes that generate important niches for the participation of developing countries suppliers from all over the world, including in highly complex services activities such as health and engineering, as well as capital-intensive activities such as distribution and construction services. --Alejandro Jara, Deputy Director General, World Trade Organization
