Introduction

Today, companies divide their operations across the world, from the design of the product and manufacturing of components to assembly and marketing, creating international production chains. More and more products are “Made in the World” rather than made in just one economy. The statistical bias created by attributing the full commercial value to the last country of origin can pervert the political debate on the origin of the imbalances and lead to misguided, and hence counter-productive, decisions. The challenge is to find the right statistical bridges between the different statistical frameworks and national accounting systems to ensure that international interactions resulting from globalization are properly reflected and to facilitate cross border dialogue between national decision makers.

“Trade in Value-Added and Global Value Chains” profiles
The statistical profiles trace the domestic and foreign content in gross exports and shed light on the participation in global value chains, services sector contribution, and trade in intermediate products of each covered economy.

 

Trade in Value-Added database

The Trade in Value-Added (TiVA) Database is the result of a joint initiative by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the WTO to help policy makers, academics and the general public better understand trade in the 21st century. The TiVA Database has been developed by OECD and contains a wide range of indicators on the value-added components of gross exports and the level of GVC participation by economy and industry.

GVC Indicator Database

The UIBE GVC Indicator Database is developed by the Research Institute for Global Value Chains at the University of International Business and Economics (UIBE, Beijing, China). This research database covers most widely used Trade in Value Added and GVC indicators from the recent literature on trade and GVCs. The time series are computed from input-output tables released by ADB,GTAP,OECD, WIOD and other global initiatives, and will be updated as new releases become available.
