Global value chains and servicification

International trade is changing. Goods and services are increasingly broken up into tasks and traded in global value chains. Exports are to a large extent made up of imports. Another important development is the “servicification” of manufacturing, which means that manufacturing industries buy, produce and sell more and more services.

These changes also have important implications for trade policy. Which policies can best promote open and free trade in view of these new business models? What should be the focus of an agency like ours, and how should trade negotiations respond? The National Board of Trade has contributed to this debate in a number of reports, looking at different aspects of the new trading landscapes.
