Introduction to the Course

This module provides an overview of economic-geographical globalization processes within the global value chain (GVC) perspective. It provides discussion on how the increasingly large number of industries that use or provide outsourcing and “offshoring” can create a sustainable competitive advantage for countries who participate in the GVC. Focus is also given on the analysis of trade in value added (TiVA) that includes current development of databases for GVC analysis and core analytical indicators for TiVA. Participants who successfully accomplished the course will have a useful overview and a set of concepts and insights that could be used for charting economic opportunities for strategic planning in the global supply chain networks. A hands-on session will be conducted to get in-touch with the data and interpretations for a well-informed policy making
