OECD has launched Participation of Developing Countries in Global Value Chains: Implications for Trade and Trade-Related Policies. A new issue in their OECD Trade Policy Papers series, this report examining participation in global value chains by developing countries. The publication analyzes global value chain participation and policy in five developing sub-regions in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, highlighting differences and similarities between activities in these sub-regions. The paper may be of particular interest to policy makers and policy advisors in these regions, to help assess existing global value chain engagement and consider additional options.
