The outward stock of US foreign direct investment (FDI) in services amounts to $ trillion, whereas the inward stock is $ trillion. As table shows, income receipts for US outward FDI in service industries far exceed income payments on US inward FDI ($ billion versus $54 billion.

A number of theoretical arguments linking trade liberalization with higher rate of industrial productivity growth can be put down. These are (1) those that affect productivity growth via scale benefits arising from correcting the domestic-relative price ratio in favor of the comparatively advantaged sectors.

(2) Those, which help improve. Inthe value of cross-border trade in services amounted to US$ billion, or about 20% of total cross-border trade.
