Date : 19 July 2018

This report reviews the latest developments in services trade and analyses the structure of global and regional trade in services. It is found that OIC countries are not able account a good share of global trade in services as they fail to diversify their export base through creating an enabling environment. Moreover, they are losing their competitive advantages in many services sectors. Therefore, there is a need for building productive capacity and competitiveness in targeted services sectors through adequate national policies and regulations in OIC countries.
