Services Policy Review (Series)

Services Policy Reviews (SPRs) are systematic reviews of the economic, trade policy, regulatory and institutional frameworks characterizing a country's services sectors in order to better harness the development benefits of the services sector and of international trade in services.

A review includes: policy analysis and research, as well as multi-stakeholder meetings at the national level for fact-finding, awareness-raising and consensus-building. The SPRs, once completed, offer recommendations for the overall services sector, and for the specific sectors that form the focus of each review, which are chosen by the Government.

By proposing policy recommendations and frameworks for monitoring of their implementation, SPRs assist beneficiary countries in developing a coherent and comprehensive strategic framework for services. Feed-back from beneficiary countries has confirmed that evidence-based policy analysis remains crucial to assist countries in identifying options for leveraging the services sector for economic growth and social welfare.

SPR assistance is financed through the General Trust Fund on Services, Development and Trade and through the Development Account.
