Description

Prepared in support of the APEC Environmental Services Action Plan, this report presents an overview of regulatory measures for environmental services in APEC economies. It includes a summary of the scope and coverage of services and measures; an overview of the institutional frameworks, the incidence of regulatory measures and the extent of liberalisation in trade agreements of environmental services identified across APEC economies; and summary outcomes of measures identified in each APEC economy. While the findings show considerable variations across the member economies, some trends are apparent. One such trend is that while not all economies have committed to market opening of environmental services in the WTO GATS, all have improved on WTO liberalisation outcomes in subsequent FTAs.
