Abstract

Korean Abstract: 디지털 경제 확산의 결과 전체 생산액 대비 서비스 부가가치의 비중이 높아지는 서비스화(Servicification) 현상이 심화되고 있다. 이와 같은 배경 아래, 본 연구는 디지털 경제의 확산이 서비스 무역비용 변화에 미치는 영향을 실증적으로 규명하기 위한 목적으로 추진되었다. 실증분석 결과에 근거한 정책 함의 발굴을 위해 디지털 경제 확산과 서비스 무역 구조, 서비스 무역장벽 완화를 위한 국제적 논의, 한국 서비스 무역의 국제경쟁력 및 부진요인 등을 검토·분석한 이후 한국의 서비스 무역 기조 확충과 안정적인 해외시장 확보를 위한 대응과제와 시사점을 제시하였다.

English Abstract: The rapid spread of digital technologies is bringing about a reshaping of the global business landscape, in which the roles of services have been diversified in the global value chain (GVC). As a matter of fact, the share of global manufacturing goods trade, which stood at 80% of total trade in 2006, fell to 70% in 2013 and remained at 76.8% as of 2017. On the other hand, the share of service trade gradually increased from 19.8% in 2006 to 23.2% in 2017.

Against this backdrop, we attempt to verify how innovating digital technologies can significantly affect trade costs in services by conducting rigorous empirical experiments. Our empirical investigation may contribute to better understanding about global trade patterns currently in action and allow the designing of more practical policy options to take in the digitalizing global economy.
