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.



Global markets for Australian services

Chapter 4 looks at the various factors that particularly influence the ability of Australian firms to compete internationally in key services markets. In Australia’s main destination markets, various obstacles may inhibit the entry of new firms or restrict the expansion of Australian exporters already engaged there. This chapter presents the main trade barriers found in some of Australia’s major trading partners for services exports emerging from an analysis of the OCED STRI database.
