Etablering på nyliberaliserade tjänstemarknader : tillfällen skapade efter EU:s bilaterala handelsavtal med Mexico och Chile (Swedish)
Background: The service sector accounts for more than 60 percent of global output. The EU has signed bilateral trade agreements with several countries and economic blocks in order to achieve reciprocal service liberalizations. The extensive trade agreements recently signed with Mexico and Chile, are expected to pave the way for new opportunities for Swedish service companies looking to entering the Latin-American market.
Purpose: To examine which entry mode will provide service companies with the best competitive advantages when entering the Mexican or Chilean market.
Results: Strong liberalizations have been made in sectors important to Swedish service companies. This will open up new opportunities for the companies when it comes to obtaining a stronger form of control over the foreign establishment. For some sectors sole venture or joint venture could be seen as realistic alternatives, while for others trade barriers still stand in the way for a more far-reaching establishment mode.
