BISAC: BUS026000

This book discusses developments in the United States’ exports and imports of professional services, with a focus on education, healthcare, and legal services. The United States continues to be a world leader in professional services, which generated a cross-border trade surplus of nearly $50 billion in 2011. The expansion of professional services trade in recent years has been driven by a number of factors. Globalization, including businesses setting up operations in foreign markets, has created trade opportunities for diverse professional services providers, such as legal and management consulting professionals. This book focuses on United States trend reports from 2012 and 2013. (Imprint: Nova)
