This chapter studying the liberalization of transport sectors and the effects of infrastructure development in Turkey first studies the opening up of Turkish transport sectors. Noting that barriers to trade of transport services lead to inefficiencies in service sectors and to high costs of services it discusses how protectionist the trade regimes in Turkey and in those of Turkey’s trading partners are. The chapter discusses the World Bank’s new Services Trade Restrictions Database, the OECD’s Services Trade Restrictiveness Index and the OECD’s Indicators of Product Market Regulations database. The chapter quantitatively determines the tariff equivalents of barriers to trade in both Turkey’s transport sectors and in Turkey’s major export markets using the approach developed by Chen and Novy. It analyses the effects of liberalization in Turkey’s transport service sectors and in Turkey’s major trading partners using a computable general equilibrium model and finally discusses the economic impact of infrastructure development.

Keywords:   World Bank’s Services Restrictions Database, OECD’s Services Trade Restrictiveness Index, OECD’s Indicators of Product Market Regulation, barriers to trade, effects of liberalization, effects of transport infrastructure development
