Demystifying Trade in Services: A Strategic Guide for ACP EPA Negotiators

Trade in services has been portrayed as one of the complicated areas in the EPA negotiations. As ACP countries engage in the EPA services negotiations, understanding the rules, principles and concepts that govern multilateral trade, and economic integration Agreements in services, becomes central to their effective participation. This Fact Sheet no. 5 prepared by Trade for Development Programme of the South Centre explains, in a simple manner, the above-mentioned rules, principles, and concepts. It is hoped that this guide will be a useful contribution to the negotiators, in securing an outcome that is in line with ACP development objectives.
