Abstract

The flow of trade in services is notoriously difficult to measure, and therefore it is difficult to identify what role it is playing in driving growth and competitiveness in the SA economy. This report therefore reviews the official data on trade in services and compares it to other available sources of information to get a sense of the extent to which the official data might be reflecting the reality on the ground.
