Description

While global value chains (GVC) theory is broad and encompasses most aspects of economic development, this report looks to provide a general understanding of the tenants of GVCs, how Asia and Latin America have integrated into GVCs over the past couple decades, the level of connectivity between the two regions already, and what can be done to improve their linkages. The report uses three case studies from the salmon, soybean and automotive industries to highlight GVCs in action and characterize the connectivity between the two regions.
