Special Issue "Services Sector Trade and Investment"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2018)
International trade in services leads to expansion of the services sector. Growth of the services sector is now well-recognised as a new driver for economic growth. A broad definition of the services sector will be considered, which includes cultural goods, education, financial services, labour services, outsourcing and real-estate. Both theoretical and empirical manuscripts on different aspects of services sector trade and investment are welcome. Both micro- and macro-level studies on individual countries and groups of countries are welcome. However, all manuscripts must have a sustainability angle and policy implications. All submitted manuscripts will be subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide-reaching dissemination of research results.
We invite high quality original manuscripts for possible publication in this Special Issue of Sustainability. Please note that the list of keywords is not exhaustive.
