Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
The global value chain approach to development looks at trends and lead firms in global industries juxtaposed to firm and industry performance in local economies to identify strategies for value creation and upgrading that increase prosperity and economic growth. The movement to higher-value-added activities and services improves competiveness with other socio-economic multiplier effects such as employment creation, foreign direct investment, rural development, human skills development, and economic growth and resilience. These studies are meant to provide an understanding of Caribbean firms and industries as they operate within the global value chain. They explore the strategies adopted by selected firms and industries to attain competitiveness in the context of global markets, discuss the strategies of leading global firms and analyse the local policy and institutional environment for business and how value is created to identify areas where upgrading at the local firm and industry level can take place to increase local value capture either by firm, industry or country.
