Emerging Issues of Upgrading in Global Value Chain: Evidence from the Apparel Industry in Bangladesh

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This presentation addresses an important research question: how do
developing country supplier firms upgrade their value chain activities –
especially when they lack necessary resources and capabilities to serve
developed country markets? The extant literature on global value chains
(GVCs) explains supplier firms’ upgrading as an outcome of multinational
enterprises (MNEs) governance mechanisms, knowledge spillover and
institutional support. This is deficient to explain suppliers firm-level
mechanisms that transform the positive effects of governance, knowledge
spillover and institutions into upgrading. To contribute to this knowledge gap,
this presentation focuses on suppliers’ capabilities perspective to explain their
upgrading within GVCs.
