The global value chains (GVCs), which encompass all activities involved in the production of goods and services on a global scale, have a complex role in trade, productivity, and economic growth. While GVCs are seen as a vehicle for job creation, questions remain about the uneven distribution of these benefits – geographically, across industries, and socially. Watch a debate presenting opposing views on trade and GVCs, followed by a panel discussion featuring experts from the retail, automotive, agriculture, and services sectors.
