This study examined the methodologies and institutional framework adopted by some developed and developing countries for collection and compilation of services trade data. It suggested a suitable mechanism for regular collection of country-wise, sector-wise and mode–wise services trade data. A pilot survey was conducted to check the validity of the data collection procedure and to help in the design of a business directory. The study provided a framework for on-line and offline services trade data collection.
