Commercial services may realize a growth figure of approximately 3.5% during the period 2003 ? 2006. A report ?the commercial services industry: a heterogeneous sector with growth potential? by CPB (Central Bureau for Economic Planning) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs was published yesterday.
Noticeably the introduction of new services and a further widening and in-depth use of ICT are responsible for this. Efficiency improvements due to the tension on the labor market are the main objective. In-depth knowledge based companies and the telecommunication sector will profit most. Further globalization and deregulation will have a positive effect on autonomous growth.
