Informe sobre el Comercio Mundial 2019

El futuro del comercio de servicios

Los servicios se han convertido en el componente más dinámico del comercio mundial, y desempeñan un papel cada vez más importante en la economía mundial y en la vida cotidiana. Sin embargo, no siempre se comprende plenamente hasta qué punto los servicios contribuyen al comercio mundial. El Informe sobre el Comercio Mundial 2019 trata de remediarlo examinando la manera en que está evolucionado el comercio de servicios y la razón por la que el comercio de servicios es importante.

The Report uses a new dataset developed by the WTO that captures the various ways in which services are supplied across borders, providing a new estimate of the total value of services trade.

Major trends affecting trade in services, including demographic changes, digital technologies, rising incomes and climate change, are examined. The Report also looks at how services trade may evolve over the next 20 years and how it may contribute increasingly to inclusive growth and development.

The Report examines how costs for services are declining, largely due to the impact of digital technologies, and how this is expected to expand the share of services in global trade. It concludes that if economies are to reap the benefits of the growing role of services trade, international cooperation will need to intensify.

The publication also includes a number of external contributions in the form of opinion pieces.
