ABSTRACT
This paper presents the results of a study examining whether empirical patterns and trends in international trade in services are in line with those for the international trade of goods. The author conducts static and dynamic analyses of Polish international trade in services using firm-level data. The results suggest that exports of services are dominated by large companies. Most of them have been on the market for a long time. Usually, they export one specific type of services to a single market. The value of service exports is growing due to the firms’ net intensive margin. All the results are similar to empirical observations made with respect to international trade in goods.
