Abstract

This paper estimates the influence of the service sector’s liberalization on service flows in CIS economies and on productivity of the Russian industry that uses these services as a production factor. I show that service trade between CIS countries and OECD could grow 2.5–3 times due to liberalization. On the basis of the inter-industry empirical analysis, one can conclude that service sector liberalization may have a positive impact on the productivity of various sectors of the Russian manufacturing industry.
