About the intra-EEA STRI
The intra-EEA STRI helps to identify which policy measures restrict trade within the European Economic Area (EEA). It complements the existing STRI, which quantifies multilateral services trade restrictiveness, allowing to track the progress of regional services integration.
The STRI database is based on regulations currently in force. STRI indices take the value from 0 to 1, where 0 is completely open and 1 is completely closed. They are calculated on the basis of information provided in the STRI database. The STRI Simulator enables policy makers and experts to explore the impact of a change at a detailed level for each measure, and to compare a specific country with a range of other selected countries in a particular sector.
