Global Value Chains and Productive Linkages

the XIII Pacific Alliance Summit, held on July 24th, 2018 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, by presidential mandate, the Technical Group of Global Chains of Value and Productive Linkages was formed with the aim of promoting the development of productive linkages between the four countries and improving the insertion of the mechanism into the regional and global value chains.

The value chain describes the full range of activities that companies and workers around the world perform to carry a product from conception to production and end use. This includes tangible and intangible value-added activities, such as research and development (R & D), design, production, distribution, marketing and support to the final consumer. Therefore, global value chains consist of cross-border and inter-company networks that bring a good or service to the market.

According to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in the year 2019, it is estimated that 2/3 of world trade is carried out through the Global Value Chains. In this sense, the PA seeks to take advantage of this trade through the generation of productive linkages, in order to enable the four member countries to benefit from the GVCs.

  1. Identify, generate and take advantage of global and regional value chains.

  2. Design and propose strategies to promote the development of productive linkages.

  3. Boost productive sectors with potential to be inserted into global and regional value chains.

  4. Expand and deepen industrial complementarity among the member countries.

group is currently working on the development of a study on potential productive linkages between the countries of the PA, which aims to identify strategies that encourage the development of productive linkages and support the insertion of the four countries in the global and regional value chains.

Identify potential productive linkages between the member countries of the PA, taking into consideration the existing complementarity and proposing actions that deepen such linkages, as well as the tools to measure their impact, coordinated with the corresponding Technical Groups (Puerto Vallarta Declaration 2018).

Group’s objectives
  1. Identify, generate and take advantage of global and regional value chains.

  2. Design and propose strategies to promote the development of productive linkages.

  3. Boost productive sectors with potential to be inserted into global and regional value chains.

  4. Expand and deepen industrial complementarity among the member countries.

Work in progress

group is currently working on the development of a study on potential productive linkages between the countries of the PA, which aims to identify strategies that encourage the development of productive linkages and support the insertion of the four countries in the global and regional value chains.

Mandates

Identify potential productive linkages between the member countries of the PA, taking into consideration the existing complementarity and proposing actions that deepen such linkages, as well as the tools to measure their impact, coordinated with the corresponding Technical Groups (Puerto Vallarta Declaration 2018).
