Kā secināts Eiropas Ekonomikas un sociālo lietu komitejas nesen pasūtītā pētījumā, pārrobežu pakalpojumi rada jaunas darbvietas un stimulē ekonomikas izaugsmi. Tie labvēlīgi ietekmē visas ES valstis un dažāda veida darbvietas — gan darbaspēka, gan zināšanu ietilpīgs. Dokuments apliecina, ka, izvairoties no stingra regulējuma pārrobežu pakalpojumu jomā, iekšējais tirgus labvēlīgi ietekmē ES ekonomiku.
