Fifth Conference Global Value Chains Trade and Development
"Trade Agreeements and Supply Chains"

Submission deadline: Wednesday 15 January 2020
Brussels, 14-16 May 2020
The production of most goods is increasingly organised along global value chains, in which different stages of the production process are fragmented across countries. The CEPR Research Network on Global Value Chains, Trade and Development was established by CEPR and the World Bank to stimulate debate on the important and timely questions raised by the emergence of global value chains.
After the first four events held in the North America (Washington, DC), Europe (Geneva), Asia (Singapore), and Latin America (Santiago de Chile), the next conference will take place in Brussels on May 14-16, 2020 and will focus on “Trade Agreements and Supply Chains.”
The conference will be hosted by the European Center for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES) of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB). It will be organised by Paola Conconi (Director of the CEPR Research Network on Global Value Chains, Trade and Development, Professor of Economics at ULB), Mathieu Parenti (Professor of Economics at ULB and CEPR) and Gonzague Vannoorenberghe (Professor of Economics at UCLouvain). It will be funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Advanced ERC Grant No. 834253 of Paola Conconi) and by the Fund for Scientific Research (FNRS Grant PDR/GTO T.0180.19 of Mathieu Parenti and Gonzague Vannoorenberghe).
