"Trade in services and dissimilarity in domestic regulations"
by Lejour, Arjan

The recent rise in bilateral data in service trade has created the possibility to analyse bilateral services trade within the gravity framework. Different from goods, services are much more affected by national regulation. Although these regulation do often not discriminate foreign service providers per se, Kox and Lejour (2005, 2006) claim that national differences in regulation hamper services trade apart from the level of regulation. In order to test this hypothesis they developed indicators for regulatory heterogeneity based upon the OECD international regulatory database. First they tested the hypothesis on total serivces and other commerical services trade. Later on Kox and Nordass (2007) and Kox, Lejour, Venneman (2007) examined this relation for subcategories of services trade and they also applied different estimation methods. This presentation will give an overview of these recent analyses of services trade using the gravity model and discusses the the various estimation methods.
