Hide / Show Abstract

The linkage between regulatory reform and liberalization in services trade has been receiving increased attention from international institutions including the World Bank, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the World Trade Organization. Building on their work, the International Trade Centre (ITC) is launching an assessment framework to promote business-friendly services regulations. Understanding trade restrictions is particularly pertinent in a global economy where supply chains are fragmented. Reducing burdensome services trade restrictions is thus an important part of the reform process.
