Granting Preferential Market Access in Services Sequentially versus Jointly with Goods

NCCR Trade Working Paper No. 2016/04 by Peter Egger & Anirudh Shingal

While most trade agreements were about goods up until 2000, many countries have beenand are now adopting services provisions. They do so by adding them to prior goods-onlyagreements or by concluding new agreements jointly for goods and services. This paper shows that high unilateral services trade costs deter the likelihood of joint preferential liberalization of goods and services.
