El trabajo que aquí se presenta pretende hacer una revisión del sector servicxios en sus relaciones con el resto de sectores productivos de la economía, en general, y con el sector industrial en particular. La escasa dedicación que ha sufrido este sector, tanto por parte de las políticas gubernamentales como a nivel académico, parecen situarlo en un plano inferior respecto a otros sectores. Sin embargo, sus implicaciones en un mundo cada vez más terciarizado lo sitúan como actividades de vital importancia para la competitividad nacional. Ello es debido a que las relaciones industria-servicios son cada vez más estrechas, tanto por los inputs que el sector servicios incorpora de la industria, como por la externalización que se produce de actividades antes incluídas en la propia empresda industrial y contratadas ahora, cada vez más, con firmas o entidades de servicios independientes. In this paper we pretend to do a revision of the service sector in its relations with the rest of the productive sectors, and with the industrial sector in particular. The poor dedication suffered by this sector, in academic works and governmental policies, has placed that one in an inferior rank from other sectors. However, its impllications in a more and more tertiarity world, place it as vital importance activities for the national competitivity. It is due to the fact that industry-services relations are closer and closer, both the inputs that the sector incorporates frrom industry in its services, as well as the externalization wich is produced in activities before included in the industry and nowadays engaged with independient services firms.
