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 and adapt to meet the challenges.

According to the OECD, about 70% of international trade today involves global value chains, as services, raw materials, parts, and components cross borders – often numerous times. The significant role GVC’s play in the world economy therefore amplified the requirement to make them sustainable in order to achieve the SDG’s.

This webinar will discuss the challenges, opportunities and solutions to meeting the Paris Agreement commitment and how GVC’s need to adapt quickly in this time of crisis in order to be more sustainable and support particularly those most vulnerable.
