Inclusive Global Value Chains

In time for the latest meeting of G20 Trade Ministers, the OECD and World Bank Group have produced a joint report titled, Inclusive Global Value Chains: Policy Options in Trade and Complementary Areas For GVC Integration By Small and Medium Enterprises and Low-Income Developing Countries.

 

This publication looks at the challenge of making global value chains more ‘inclusive’ by overcoming participation constraints for small and medium enterprises and facilitating access for low-income developing countries. The findings of this report were presented at the annual ministerial meeting on 6 October 2015.

 

This publication, as well as other documents, tools and more are accessible from the OECD iLibrary by WTO staff and WTO Library patrons.

Participation of Developing Countries in Global Value Chains

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.

In addition to the full paper, there is also a 20-page summary paper and a 4-page policy note, all available in electronic format through a WTO Library subscription to OECD iLibrary.

Implications of China’s on-going dependence on foreign technology

This paper examines the on-going high level of dependency of China’s economy on foreign sources of technology during the period since accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO). Because this dependency is a major cause of concern for China’s leaders and policymakers, they have sought to shift the direction of the economy particularly since 2006 towards a greater focus on indigenous innovation. Achieving such a major transformation, however, in an era when much of China’s economic activity has become integrated within the global value chains of major corporations, is very challenging, and the evidence to date suggests only a modest level of success on the part of Chinese companies to substitute for the on-going dominant position of foreign companies particularly in China’s high technology sectors.
