The objective of the current paper is to explore the impact of services inputs on export performance of manufacturing firms in transition economies. The results of the study provide a new understanding of the consequences of trade liberalization in services sector. In particular, positive impact of services sector efficiency on export performance of manufacturers is revealed. Thus, advancing liberalization reforms in telecommunications, electric power, railway transport, road transport, and water distribution sectors as well as in banking sector will stimulate expansion of export activities of manufacturers.
