UNIDO/KCG Conference on Inclusive and Sustainable Global Value Chains
The Conference will be organized under the auspices of the T20 network – particularly the T20 Task Force on “Trade and Investment”. The Conference aims at bringing together academics, policy makers, representatives from international organizations and businesses to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the proliferation of global production networks (GPNs) and explore options to ensure that GPNs can develop in a more inclusive and sustainable way. The themes for the plenary sessions are: - How can governments, international organizations and private business shape Global Value Chains to make them more inclusive and sustainable? - How can digital technologies contribute to the development of inclusive and sustainable GPNs? - The nexus between foreign capital and GPN participation in the context of SDGs: policy insights from and for developing countries. - Reaping the benefits from GPNs: translating lessons from Asia into smart strategies for Africa and other developing regions.
