“Rethinking Competitiveness: The Global Value Chain Revolution”

Global Value Chains (GVCs) have exploded in the past decade and refer to the international dispersion of design, production, assembly, marketing and distribution of services, activities, and products. The rise of global value chains is posing new challenges to analyses of international trade and countries’ competitiveness. Different stages in the production process are increasingly located across different economies, and intermediate inputs like parts and components are produced in one country and then exported to other countries for further production and/or assembly into final products.

Since 1990s, global value chains (GVCs) have grown rapidly and integrated a number of Asian countries including the Association of Southeast Nations (ASEAN) into the phenomenon while China has emerged as a major assembly center where intermediate inputs from East Asian countries are used in the production of final goods for export to the rest of the world. This functional and spatial fragmentation that has occurred within GVCs has significantly reshaped the global economic landscape, thereby raising new policy challenges for both developed and developing countries in formulating policies in relation to trade, competitiveness, product upgrading and innovation.
