Formatted abstract
This thesis examines, both theoretically and empirically, the importance of indirectly traded services. The Tinbergen semi-input-output technique is employed to illustrate the overall importance of indirectly traded services to the tradeable sector. Subsequently, the Hirschman linkage and standard multipliers criteria are used to identify the important indirectly traded services. One fil1ding of the study indicates that indirectly traded services have a crucial role to play within the rapid restructuring of the Australian economy. Indirectly traded services constitute a vital economic infrastructure, el1abling the country to become more productive and competitive. Moreover, the study suggests that the information service sectors within indirectly traded services would be the leading contributor to downstream value-adding sectors in general, and manufacturing in particular.
