Global production sharing — cross-border dispersion of production processes within vertically integrated global industries — has been an increasingly important structural feature of economic globalization in the recent decades. global production sharing opens up opportunities for countries to specialize in different slices (tasks) of the production process depending on their relative cost advantage and other relevant economic fundamentals. Decisions about how much to produce and for which market have to be combined with decisions about whether to produce and with what degree of intra-product specialisation. What is developing countries’ role within global production networks, and what are impacts of global production sharing to countries late in joining the networks? This topic will be addressed by Professor Premachandra Athukorala in this regional webinar for audience in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Indonesia.
