ABOUT THE 2020 THEME

Global value chains play a key role in the global economy, creating jobs, sharing prosperity, fostering innovation and attracting investment but are being increasingly challenged by the rise in protectionism, climate change and digitisation. This inaugural ICC event will look at the issues and provide a set of policy recommendations for how global value chains can evolve to meet the challenges.
