INTRODUCTION

 

The rise of services is a common feature in the way patterns of consumption, production and trade are changing all over the world. Services shape the structure of developed economies and direct the economic transformation that accompanies the process of development. Acquiring the tools to understand the role of services and of related policies in contemporary world economy is a necessary condition for global governance. This executive training drew from rigorous academic research and distilled relevant concepts and facts from the economics of services. Equipped with such a toolkit, participants engaged directly with a number of pressing policy challenges. How can we identify the winners and losers of servicification and design a services-led strategy for sustainable development? How shall we rethink industrial policy, regulations and trade agreements to make sure that modern services sectors and trade will deliver higher welfare to everybody?
