Yet academic research has faced two major challenges: poor measurement and poorly understood mechanisms. This ambitious research program that will use exceptional new data and novel GVC measures for path-breaking GVC analysis. First, it will exploit unique panel data on firm production, management practices, export and import transactions for the world’s two largest export economies, Chi...
