    World Development Report 2020: Trading for Development in the Age of Global Value Chains

    October 2019
    This report examines whether there is still a path to development through global value chains (GVCs) and trade. It concludes that technological change is at this stage more a boon than a curse. GVCs can continue to boost growth, create better jobs, and reduce poverty provided that developing countries implement deeper reforms to promote GVC participation, industrial countries pursue open, predictable policies, and all countries revive multilateral cooperation.
