Project Summary

The objective of the two-day self funded workshop is to improve the quality and availability of internationally comparable information in the APEC region, by building the technical capacities of APEC economies to collect, analyze, measure and present information on their services regulatory environment, focusing on both regulatory barriers and trade and investment flows. This workshop builds on the outcomes of the APEC Trade in Services Index Workshop held in Kuala Lumpur in 2017.The aims of the workshop are strongly aligned with APEC’s commitment under the APEC Services Competitiveness Roadmap (ASCR) and the APEC-wide Action to support the “development of services-related statistics to measure and support the implementation of the roadmap and improve tracking of services trade and investments”, and supports GOS-endorsed actions to develop an APEC index to measure the services regulatory environment in APEC economies. The workshop will focus on a mix of policy and practical elements aimed at improving the technical capacities of trade policy officials from APEC economies to effectively collect, measure and analyze data on the scope and impact of measures on cross border services and investment in specific sectors including digitally-enabled services.
