WTO releases new statistical profiles on global value chains
The WTO has released new statistical profiles on global value chains (GVCs) for 61 economies. These profiles, available on the WTO website, bring together a set of indicators on trade taking place within GVCs
Using data from the OECD-WTO database on Trade in Value Added (TiVA), these profiles provide insights into the value-added content of exports, the interconnection between economies within GVCs and the role of the services industry in exports. Other indicators related to GVCs include trade in intermediate goods, trade facilitation and foreign direct investment.
Explanatory notes contain definitions and additional information for the interpretation and use of the indicators. The number of profiles made available reflects the current coverage of the TiVA database, which will be gradually expanded.
