Pakistan’s Economy and Trade in the Age of Global Value Chains
This publication examines the economy and trade of Pakistan in the context of global value chains (GVCs), or cross-border production networks. The report combines innovative analytical tools with the latest available data to explore Pakistan's involvement in GVCs. It produces indicators on factors including Pakistan's rate of GVC participation, the lengths of its GVC production, its patterns of specialization, and the price competitiveness of its exports. It draws on the Multiregional Input–Output database of the Asian Development Bank, the only time series of intercountry input–output tables to date that includes Pakistan and preliminary data for 2020.
