Richard Baldwin, Javier Lopez-Gonzalez

NBER Working Paper No. 18957
Issued in April 2013
NBER Program(s):   ITI

The trade linked to international production networks – supply-chain trade for short – is associated with momentous global economic changes. This paper presents a portrait of the global pattern of supply-chain trade and how it has evolved since 1995. The paper draws on a variety of data sources but most heavily on the recent World Input-Output Database. China’s supply-chain trade receives special attention.
