Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee tellitud uue uuringu kohaselt loovad piiriülesed teenused uusi töökohti ja majanduskasvu. Neil on positiivne mõju kõigile ELi riikidele ja eri liiki töökohtadele – nii tööjõu- kui ka teadmusmahukatele töökohtadele.

Piiriüleste teenuste osakaalu vähendamine 1 % võrra läheks ELi majandusele maksma umbes 8 miljardit eurot.
