Neringa Langviniene, Rima Zitkiene

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Research on international trade in services is rather fragmented. Services usually are not an object for international trade, as they are intangible, non-transportable, non-tradable at the international market level. Here, in this article the concept of international service is presented, as well as barriers for trading them abroad are indentified. Tendencies of international trade in services are underlined. On the ground of secondary data, opportunities to trade globally for Lithuanian services suppliers are developed. At the end of the article recommendations for increasing the level of international trade of services are discussed.
