Abstract

This paper addresses an important research question: how do developing country supplier firms upgrade their value chain activities – especially given they frequently lack necessary resources and capabilities to serve developed country markets? The conventional wisdom on global value chains (GVCs) explains that supplier firms’ upgrading is an outcome of multinational enterprises (MNEs) governance mechanisms, knowledge spillover and institutional support. This is deficient in explaining how suppliers firm-level mechanisms assist in transforming the positive effects of governance, knowledge spillover and institutions into economic upgrading activities.
