Global Value Chains Platform

Global Value Chains (GVCs) have become a key feature of the trade and investment landscape, with over half of world goods imports consisting of intermediates. They have been found to enhance productivity and economic growth and enable many developing countries to integrate into the global trade system and diversify their exports. However, GVCs raise important development, inclusion and sustainability concerns. Many countries are left out of these networks. The distribution of gains within countries that are part of GVCs is highly uneven. The social and environmental impacts of supply chain operations need to be better measured and improved.
The GVC Platform creates a community of GVC experts, policymakers, businesses and civil society organisations through digital interactions, workshops, conferences and other events to:


  • promote evidence-based policies in the areas of trade, investment, services, competition, taxation, visa and immigration, standards and regulation, and trade and investment facilitation;

  • showcase public and private sector policies and practices which successfully improve the sustainable development impacts of GVCs; and

  • catalyse new partnerships.


The ultimate aim is to further inclusiveness, sustainability and development through GVCs.
