Global Value Chains and Trade in Value-Added: International Input-Output Analysis


Global value chains (GVCs) and Trade in Value-Added (TiVA) have become rather hot issues in both academic areas and for policy-makers. In 2013, IDE-JETRO launched a new research project concerning GVCs and TiVA -related issues in collaboration with the United States International Trade Commission (USITC). We proposed a new framework to help measure the linkages between a country’s domestic value chains and global value chains. In order to verify the validity and usefulness of this new approach, some preliminary numerical results are presented and discussed based on the Chinese 2007 Interregional IO table, China customs statistics at the provincial level, and the World Input-output Database (WIOD).
