The global or regional value chains that resulted from this process offer national economies the opportunity to specialize in individual stages. However, the extent to which participation in global value chains positively contributes to domestic development goals depends on the conditions under which domestic industry and farming can participate in these chains. The institutional context (such as government regulation) is crucial to led value chains offer domestic companies opportunities for upgrading, acquiring advanced technology, for creating new jobs, with learning opportunities, more inclusiveness and sustainability in production....
