AVEs-Services

AVE-Services contains ad valorem equivalents of restrictions on cross-border trade in services for 118 countries and 9 sectors, using the GTAP databaseof trade in services for 2011. Results compare with those of Fontagné, Guillin, and Mitaritonna (2011) for the year 2004. We use the same method, for a larger set of countries. For sake of comparison the database proposes also ad valorem equivalents for 2004 and 2007 estimated for the original (2004) set of 64 countries of Fontagné, Guillin, and Mitaritonna.
