This thorough report on international trade in professional services – particularly in education, health care and law – lists six US International Trade Commission employees as authors. That may account for the depth and breadth of information, as well as the disorganized writing style and repetitiveness of certain sections. The publication intrigues, though it leans so heavily on statistics that readers new to the subject might welcome more interpretation, commentary and context. Nonetheless, getAbstract recommends this report as useful background for investors, entrepreneurs and practitioners wondering how they might capitalize on emerging trends in the global trade of professional services.
In this summary, you will learn
- What trends affect cross-border services trade in the fields of law, health care and education;
- Which countries offer the best opportunities in professional services; and
- What the future holds for global trade in these services.
