  • Round table on “Inflation and Global Value Chains”
    During the last decades international trade has been transformed and reshaped by the rise of global value chains (GVC). Starting with the 1980s, both price stabilization and inflation rates synchronization enhanced participation of firms in GVC. However, the outburst of COVID-19 increased inflation uncertainty and negatively affected price co-movements, with implications for the smooth functioning of GVC. The purpose of this round table is to debate on how recent inflation dynamics has influenced GVC and on the potential strategic responses of multinational companies to these new developments.
