FY 2016/2017 Research Topic:
Impact of Technological Innovation on Global Value Chains


This research group has been formed in order to perform the collaborative research activities stipulated under the MOU between IDE-JETRO, World Trade Organization, World Bank Group, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and Global Value Chains Research Center. Specifically, it aims to contribute to the publication of the “GVC Development Report,” which is planned to be published periodically as a joint effort of the above-mentioned five organizations.
The first half of the FY2016 will be dedicated to the publication and dissemination of the first volume of the Report, which is based primarily on research assets from the preceding years. In the latter half of the year, a joint collaboration with the World Bank Group is planned in preparation for the second volume of the Report, with a particular reference to issues concerning the impact of technological innovation on Global Value Chains.
