The second part includes an overview of the services sector, focusing specifically on its importance to the economy. The third part of the paper sets out in detail the framework for calculating the proposed measures of competitiveness. It also illustrates Romaniaï¿½s competitive position on the European services market, based on an integrated measure of international trade competitiveness. The paper concludes by revealing Romaniaï¿½s specialization potential in international trade in services and by identifying research issues that require further study.
