This subcommittee focuses on CEFTA’s efforts to further liberalise trade in services through negotiating specific protocols and improving the overall business environment for services.  It operates in accordance with its official Terms of Reference as set out in JC Decision 5/2014 and amended by JC Decision 2/2015.

The Subcommittee directly oversees and streamlines the work of the Negotiating Group on Trade in Services and the Working Group on Trade in Services Statistics.  It also collaborates closely with the RCC on the management of the Joint RCC-CEFTA Working Group on Recognition of Qualifications – all with the objective of promoting greater trade in services by the CEFTA Parties.
