About the product

This is a collection of studies on services, most of which were presented at the conference on “Reforming services for inclusive and sustainable development of Asia and the Pacific” held in Bali, Indonesia in October 2010. The collection provides an agenda for future empirical research and must be perceived as a start. Its aim is to pinpoint key research questions and policy challenges, for which more focused analytical scrutiny, better data and more fine-tuned modelling efforts can hope to produce findings to improve public policies. Work of this nature may underpin the formulation, conducting and implementation of trade and investment policies, both within the remit of domestic reforms and of international cooperation and preferential and multilateral negotiations.
