As part of our efforts to work and deliver the fruits of our work as a single entity, the Centre is intensifying work that requires centre-wide involvement, utlilizing complementary expertise of different divisions. This work includes producing substantive publications through addressing topical issues that ASEAN faces today and providing solutions. The Centre takes a multi-faceted and holistic approach to knowledge creation.
Value chains, SMEs and AEC
The Centre, as part of new efforts to conduct research and policy analysis, aims to provide insights into the relevance, impact and patterns of value added trade and global value chains (GVCs) across the ASEAN and its Member States and in select industries.
For this purpose, the GVC database was created in FY2016, built upon efforts made by other organizations such as the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Based on the database, 16 technical reports will be produced over the next several years: one paper for each country; five industry papers (automobile, electrics, textiles and clothing, agribusiness, tourism) and one whole paper on the region itself.
