This book presents an in depth analysis of the contribution of services to the Australian economy, the regulatory environment of the services sector and its performance in an international context. The analysis highlights the importance of co-ordinated domestic policy action, priorities for promoting behind-the-border regulatory reforms in strategic international markets, and the benefits of an ambitious bilateral, plurilateral and multilateral trade policy agenda that contributes to rules-based certainty and predictability in services trade globally.

The chapter sets out opportunities for Australians in global markets, examining sectoral strengths and relative export performance with main trading partners, including with regard to Australia’s comparative advantage, bilateral export patterns and the demand-side role of regional value chains.
