Compilation Report: Global Value Chains, Development Challenges and Policy Options
This compilation of five papers was produced in 2013 in the context of the “E15 Expert Group on Global Value Chains: Development Challenges and Policy Options”, convened by ICTSD and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The background paper presents the main trade policy and development issues that are raised by the new fragmented structure of international production and trade. The following think pieces explore how global value chains bring about new implications for trade policy, industrial policy, the effects of regional trade agreements and for achieving development objectives. They also try to address how and to what extent trade policies can and should address these challenges.
