Working together on business goals

For business to play a full role in reform of the services sector, not only must governments consult it, but business must also have the capacity to perform effectively in such discussions. Consultation serves the interests of governments and business. Because there are challenges for business, this chapter outlines how businesses can group themselves to keep abreast of developments and respond to consultations.
