Openness, global value chains, and productivity-enhancing policies

#GFPBudapest

 

The international fragmentation of production in global value chains (GVCs) challenges the way we look at the global economy. It is essential to understand how GVCs are transforming, how they affect productivity and for whom, and how policy can help countries derive the potential productivity benefits from participation in GVCs.

In the light of this, the 2017 Conference of the Global Forum on Productivity will bring together senior policy-makers, experts and academics to address some of the leading questions related to the overarching theme, including:

 

  • What have been the effects of integrating GVCs in terms of productivity?
  • What are the productivity consequences of the changing structure of GVCs?
  • What policy actions help to improve the productivity spillovers to domestic firms?
  • How do changes in globalisation, digitisation and regional integration impact the supply chains, and how should policymakers react?
  • How to make sure that the productivity gains from participation in global networks are widely distributed across the economy?
  • What is the experience of productivity-enhancing institutions in addressing the challenges raised by the expansion of GVCs?
