Identifying South Africa's Interests in WTO Services Negotiations

  • Year: 2002
  • Author(s): Nnzeni Netshitomboni; Matthew Stern

The paper extends simple trade analysis techniques used to evaluate barriers to goods trade to identify opportunities and barriers to South African trade in services. Using available services trade data from four of South Africa's major trading partners, under-traded service imports are identified and compared to trade restrictions listed in the WTO services schedule of these four countries.
