ECIPE Lunch Seminar: The Rise of Global Value Chains – Implications for Trade and Competition Policy

January 31 2012
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Ari Van Assche
Time: 12:30

The expansion of global value chains has a major impact on international trade. New trade patterns are not so much about trade in goods as trade in tasks. Trade in intermediate inputs accounts for a considerable part of total trade, and that share has been growing at a remarkable speed in the past decade. What are the sources of this increase – and to what extent are new global value chains global or regional in nature? And what does the rise of global value chains means for competition?

You are cordially invited to a lunch seminar with Ari Van Assche, an Associate Professor of International Business at HEC Montréal, who will discuss new paradigm of GVC based on a new paper.

A sandwich lunch will be served.

RSVP for the event by February 29
