Chapter 2 - Services and Services Trade in ASEAN: Trends and Policy Context


Chapter 2 situates the role of services and services trade in the ASEAN economic landscape, providing a range of contextual metrics with which to gauge the contribution that services and services trade make to the region’s insertion into regional and global value chains and the overall regulatory and institutional setting in which such efforts proceed. It further investigates the actual (as opposed to negotiated) degree of openness of service regimes maintained in a sample of leading AMS, using a database developed by the World Bank Group.
