Singapore's International Trade in Services: New Statistical Estimates

In view of the importance of trade in services to the Singapore economy, DOS initiated an annual Survey on International Trade in Services (TIS) to facilitate the compilation of more disaggregated data on Singapore’s trade in services statistics. With the successful completion of the TIS for reference years 1995-97, DOS has compiled a new set of statistics on Singapore’s trade in services. These statistics are compiled in accordance with the IMF's Balance of Payments Manual

The data sources and the underlying statistical framework used to compile Singapore's trade in services statistics are provided in DOS's Occasional Paper, entitled "Singapore's International Trade in Services: New Statistical Estimates and Analysis" pdf icon (77kb).
