Global and regional value chain symposium held in Chile
On November 21 JETRO held a symposium titled "Global and Regional Value Chains: Asian and Latin American Experiences" in cooperation with the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) and the University of Chile Institute of International Studies (IEI).
Given the development of international production networks, or global value chains (GVCs), by leading companies in the world and the growing impact they are having on the world economy, this symposium was held with the goal of planning the diffusion of results of both theoretical and empirical analytical research on GVCs in Latin America. At the same time, examples of GVC formation through trade and investment between Japan and Chile were presented in order to deepen understanding of the actual economic relationship between the countries.
The symposium was highly praised by participants. One stated "These presentations offered more than a mere analysis of trade; they offered an analysis of business on an added-value basis with real substance. This was extremely useful."
