The 2016 APEC Economic Policy Report, ‘Structural Reform and Services’, tackles a subject at the very heart of current growth, productivity and economic inclusion challenges facing the APEC region.
The report consists of a policy framework chapter, which concludes with a set of important recommendations, and five case studies that provide an in depth analysis of the economic impact of specific services sector reforms:
• China: retail services
• Indonesia: air transport services
• Japan: financial services
• New Zealand: electricity retail services
• Chinese Taipei: testing and certification services
In addition, APEC members have contributed Individual Economy Reports.
