7th Global Economic Summit on Global Value Chains: Accelerating MSME Growth, Development and Sustainability
Dates: February 22-24, 2018
Location: Mumbai, India
World Trade Centre Mumbai and All India Association of Industries invite WIIT members to participate in a forum exploring the ways international trade is increasingly being driven by trade in value added goods and intermediate goods as well as trade in services. Witnessing the rise of Global Value Chains (GVCs), stakeholders in developing countries typically want to see their countries more involved in value chains and moving to value-added activities within the chains over time. This phenomenon is fostering integration of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in value chains. The 7th edition of the Global Economic Summit will stimulate a multi-dimensional discussion on the opportunities and challenges for SMEs in connecting with the global value chains and the importance of women entrepreneurs and their contribution to economic development in a global context.
