Ifølge den nye undersøgelse, som er bestilt af Det Europæiske Økonomiske og Sociale Udvalg, skaber grænseoverskridende tjenesteydelser nye job og økonomisk vækst. Sådanne tjenesteydelser er positive for alle EU-lande og for de forskellige typer job – både arbejds- og vidensintensive. Dokumentet viser, at det er til fordel for EU's økonomi at undgå en streng regulering af det indre marked for grænseoverskridende tjenesteydelser. En nedgang i andelen af grænseoverskridende tjenesteydelser med 1 % vil koste EU's økonomi ca. 8 mia. EUR.
