The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian t.me/Roscongress, English – t.me/RoscongressDirect, and Spanish t.me/RoscongressEsp. Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Measuring and Analyzing the Impact of GVCs on Economic Development

The importance of the phenomenon of global value chains (GVCs) has stimulated researchers from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (part of the World Bank Group), the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the Institute of Developing Economies (IDE—JETRO), and the Research Center of Global Value Chains of the University of International Business and Economics (RCGVC-UIBE), to develop statistics and analysis based on the value added in trade. The GVC phenomenon also demands that researchers analyze the discrete tasks or phases in the global production process. Data are now available on the value added traded among major economies during 1995–2014.

In recent years, GVCs have gained much importance because they help integrate developing countries into global trade and increase productivity. Some countries, however, have benefited more than others. This report analyzes the newest data to help policymakers and other interested parties grasp the growing complexity of global trade and consider strategies that can make GVCs more inclusive. Besides, the experts identify the factors that determine the degree of countries’ integration in GVCs and ways to maximize the benefits of GVCs.

Global value chains (GVCs) break up the production process so different steps can be carried out in different countries. Today’s official statistical information systems designed to measure economic activity have struggled to keep pace with changes in global economy but in the end they don’t reflect reality as clearly as calculations based on GVC data do. Conventional measures of trade measure the gross value of transactions between partners and so are unable to reveal how foreign producers, upstream in the value chain, are connected to final consumers at the end of the value chain.

This first Global Value Chain Development Report draws on the expanding research that uses data on the value added in trade. Its main objective is to reveal the changing nature of international trade that can be seen only by analyzing it in terms of value added and value chains. This report highlights how shifting the analysis to value added radically changes the picture.

This publication has been posted in the Roscongress Information and Analytical System on the recommendation of the Roscongress Foundation expert community.
