Abstract:

The study examines the services of eleven English-speaking Caribbean countries. It begins with a conceptualization of services. An outline of the pattern of development in world services in terms of output, employment and trade is presented, followed by a profile of the Caribbean services sector. This profile is centered around aggregated and sub-sectoral trends in output, balance of payments, trade and employment as well as an income elasticity test and guidelines for identifying service economies. The final section highlights some development and management issues against the background of the statistical findings and in relation to internatinal demand trends.
