Global production networks and unemployment: a developing country perspective is a 2013 report, published by the OECD. It is no. 154 of the OECD trade policy paper series.

Internationalized firms in developing economies tend to employ more workers and pay higher wages than firms that deal exclusively with the domestic market, according to this paper that shows the links between global value chains (GVXs) and labour market outcomes. Engagement in international activities by firms provides great opportunities for women to enter the formal employment market, the paper also shows.
