Asian Experiences with Global and Regional Value Chain Integration and Structural Change

Client/Funding Institution



This study was part of a larger research project on global and regional value chains in South and South East Asia undertaken by UNIDO and a Chinese partner (UIBE). Its main objective was to investigate the relationship between the intensification of global and regional value chains and structural indicators as well as export-related performance measures in South-East Asia and South Asia. The research was based on OECD’s Inter-Country Input-Output Tables covering more than 60 countries over the period 1995-2011.
