Global value chains in a changing world is a 2013 report by the World Trade Organization.

Global value changes (GVC) are a major driving force of globalisation. They are inevitable outgrowth of the application of transformative information and transport technologies, combined with new business models and largely open borders.

These can no longer be seen as separate, meriting distinct attention and discrete policy treatment. The international fragmentation of production has generated the opposite of fragmentation – a complex networked system of production and consumption with innumerable moving, interactive parts.
