OECD meeting of transport experts

On 15-16 November 2010 the OECD hosted a meeting of transport experts, including representatives from ICAO, the World Bank, the WTO and IATA, as well as academics, to discuss the development of a services trade restrictiveness index.

A Highlights of Discussions document has been released by the OECD along with presentations and background documents.

A particularly thought provoking paper is that by Kenneth Button from George Mason University on Air Transportation Services: Both a Traded Commodity and a Transactions Cost in Trade.
