"TOWARDS A GLOBAL DATA SET ON TRADE IN SERVICES BY SECTOR AND MODE OF SUPPLY – A PROGRESS REPORT"
by Wettstein, Steen, Lucian Cernat, Andreas Maurer, Antonella Liberatore and Barbara D'Andrea


Abstract
The non-availability of trade in services data by mode of supply hampers the analysis, monitoring, and formulation of trade negotiating strategies and may lead to counterproductive outcomes from both national and global perspectives.

A number of initiatives have been launched recently in this area, at national, regional and international level. This paper will present some of these initiatives, based on either the simplified approach (e.g. Eurostat or US BEA) or on approaches to amend existing surveys to collect information (e.g. Spain or New Zealand).

The international initiative described here aims at creating an analytical dataset at global level for the period of 2005 to 2016. Sector data will follow the structure as defined in the Extended Balance of Payments Classification (EBOPS 2010) in the Manual on Statistics on International Trade in Services (MSITS 2010). It will be complemented by estimates developing information on the size of mode 3.

While the simplified approach is taken as starting point, results of new case and pilot studies will serve to improve estimates at country and consequently global level. Therefore it is hoped that the dataset will develop into an international benchmark incorporating gradually any new information that becomes available over time.
