Peru’s Trade in Services: Multilateral and Preferential Liberalization
MILE Thesis 2011, authored by Cristina Sanchez Rocha, under the supervision of Pierre Sauvé
This thesis is aimed at evaluating Peru’s PTA in order to determine the level of preferences granted and received by it. From an importing side, the focus is to assess the services commitments given by Peru to its three major trading partners, the US, the EU and China, with the view to comparing their coverage. From an exporting side, the aim is to analyze US, EU and China’s offers granted to Chile, Colombia and Costa Rica, accordingly, with the objective of determining to what extent these PTAs are benefiting Peru. The research is based on the Marchetti and Roy (2008) methodology of computing services commitments.
