On Thursday 25 November 2021, from 15.00 - 16.00 hrs. (CET), Jeroen van Wijk, Associate Professor in Global Value Chains and Partnerships will deliver a webinar about how MSM's executive "Value Chain Analysis for business development and local value addition" program helps you to carry out an appropriate value chain analysis for your business.
About the webinar
Global Value Chains (GVC) are the network vehicles through which most of international trade takes place. Participation in GVCs adds value, creates employment and offers effective opportunities for achieving higher levels of sustainability in the economy. The extent to which a country or company can benefit from these value chains depends on their strategies and policies. Performing a value chain analysis is an effective manner to diagnose the ails of an economic sector and to assess opportunities for value addition.
During this webinar you will get you a glimpse on how MSM’s 5-day executive “Value Chain Analysis for business development and local value addition” program will give you a better understanding of the nature of Global Value Chains, the importance of governance and upgrading in such value chains and how to set up a value chain analysis for your own business.
The “Value Chain Analysis for business development and local value addition program” is designed for all senior executives, policy makers, lecturers and consultants from emerging economies who are involved in GVCs or are motivated to learn about, and apply, GVC tools and approaches.
During the 30- minute webinar, you will get all the insights about the program and there is plenty of time to ask questions.
When: Thursday 25 November, 2021
