Book launch: Global Value Chain Development Report 2017

Measuring and Analyzing the Impact of GVCs on Economic Development

The Global Value Chain Development Report 2017 - co-published by the World Bank, WTO, OECD, Institute of Developing Economies (IDE-JETRO) and the Research Centre of Global Value Chains (RCGVC) - is to be launched at the WTO on 10 July.

Geneva, WTO Headquarters - Room S3
:

Global value chains (GVCs) have transformed world trade. GVCs create new opportunities for developing countries, increase their participation in global markets and enable them to diversify exports. But while global value chains have helped many developing countries advance, some have benefited more than others. The Global Value Chain Development Report, a joint publication from the World Bank Group, WTO, OECD, IDE-JETRO and RCGVC, analyzes new data to understand global trade’s increasing complexity and to consider policies that can make GVCs more inclusive. At this event, global trade experts from the World Bank Group, WTO and OECD will present their findings and discuss with audience participants.
