This chapter documents the changing face of the services industry over the past three decades (1970–2000). It makes a special reference to two case studies – telecommunications and banking. Both are largely positive cases of reform leading to a more efficient provision of a range of services. There are other cases of successful reforms in the sector, including domestic shipping and civil aviation. This chapter also closely examines regulations that distort trade in services.
