Project Summary

This proposal is to hold a Joint CTI and GOS Private Public Dialogue (PPD) on Services during SOM3. It contributes towards the Cross Fora Collaboration Guidelines of 2017 on alignment of similar discussions across the different APEC foras.  The Proposed PPD is designed to:

1) share perspectives on implementing the 2016 APEC Services Competitiveness Roadmap (ASCR) against the background of the structural transformation to digitization underway in the global economy and:

2)   contribute under Pillar II of the 2017 APEC Cross-Border E-  Commerce Facilitation Framework, which specifically calls for capacity building through PPD on how MSMEs can increase their access to cross-border E Commerce opportunities. 

The proposed PPD would provide a platform to pick up some of the themes which emerged from the APEC GOS PPD on Services “New Technologies and the ASCR” held in Kuala Lumpur in October 2017 in conjunction with the Asia Pacific Services Coalition (APSC).  It was evident at that PPD that MSMEs are increasingly seeking to access global and regional services value chains via the use of the internet and B2B E Commerce in services.  It was also evident that the public dialogue to date has been dominated by discussion of cross-border E Commerce in goods (in which services play a vital role) but that there has been insufficient focus on cross-border E Commerce in services, which has the potential to grow even more rapidly.

Therefore participation of both CTI and GOS members to the PPD would keep the momentum on the discussions across a wide range of areas on E-commerce space. 

The objectives of the PPD on Services are to enhance understanding of the new cross-border services business opportunities available, especially for SMEs and MSMEs, to identify challenges and share experiences of dealing with the related structural disruptions in services sectors, and to discuss successful government policies and regulatory approaches that might enable the private sector to achieve its growth potential for all. 

The PPD would redress the imbalances, and in so doing help to hasten implementation of many collective actions under the ASCR which would benefit from continued dialogue with the regional services business community.   This is especially true with respect to the services aspects of the Renewed APEC Agenda on Structural Reform and ASCR collective action 9.
