Service trade is an important area of cooperation among RCEP countries. Based on the data of WTO database from 2013 to 2019, this paper uses TC and RCA index to study the overall and sub-sector service trade competitiveness of China and RCEP partner countries. The results show that: on the whole, the overall competitiveness of RCEP countries is weak; China has strong competitive advantages in construction, telecommunications, computer and information, insurance, and other business services, weak advantages in transportation, tourism, and finance, and a competitive disadvantage in intellectual property. Based on the research results, this paper puts forward some countermeasures and suggestions on how to promote the high-level development of service trade.
