Xuepeng Liu Tenured Faculty Enhancement Leave Program

While merchandise trade still accounts for the largest portion of international trade, many service activities are traded indirectly, embodied in traded goods. Official trade statistics likely understate the importance of services in international trade because many non-traded services are inputs for manufactured goods. I was appointed by the World Bank to work as a research consultant during year 2013 on a project to examine embodied services in manufacture. The goal of this sabbatical leave application is to allow me the time needed to carry out this project in a timely manner.
