The past two decades have seen exciting changes with developing countries emerging as dynamic exporters of services. Can this dynamism be sustained and replicated in other countries? The book illustrates the complexity of policy making in the service sector, as well as the benefits of well-implemented reforms, with studies of Brazil, Chile, the Arab Republic of Egypt, India, Kenya, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

This event is sponsored by the Infoshop, the International Trade Department (PREM), and the Development Research Group (DEC)
