From traded to tradable services: an application to French data #(in French)

Muriel BARLET - Laure CRUSSON - Sébastien DUPUCH - Florence PUECH

This paper is a first attempt, for metropolitan France, to identify the service activities that are internationally traded and of those that could become so, i.e. those that can be technically produced and consumed in different places. Our estimates show that only half of service activities are internationally traded currently. But thirty out of the thirty-six activities covered by our study appear as potentially tradable. However, even if the number of potentially tradable service activities is high, non-tradable activities still represent one third of total employment for metropolitan France.
