They conclude that core regions dominate the national system of service trade. In North America, Keil and Mack (1986) and Gilmer et al. (1987) identify similar trends. To assess both the extent to which services export inter-locally and inter-regionally and the propensity of services to export relative to manufacturing, a large number of empirical studies have been conducted on specific localities, many of which are analysed in the next chapter.
