World commercial services exports swung into decline in the third quarter of 2012
According to preliminary estimates by the WTO and UNCTAD, in the third quarter of 2012, world exports of commercial services shrank by 2 %, as compared with the same quarter last year. Preliminary figures (balance-of-payments basis, current prices) indicate the sharp drop in services exports in Europe (-7%), while the services trade growth also slowed, but remained positive in North America (2%) and Asia and Oceania (4%).
