Train-the-Trainers Seminar on Measuring the Contribution of Services to Regional Value Chains
29 - 31 January 2019
United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, Room Caucus 11
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Key Issues

Background

Integration into higher value-added activities of global and regional value chains is crucial for development outcomes and realizing the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Services are essential in this endeavour owing to their ability to stimulate trade and to provide comparatively high value addition. Connecting and integrating into value chains is, however, demanding. A major challenge is to understand how these value chains operate, to measure them and design policies to support a higher degree of integration.

The project targets three services sectors that are critical for enabling trade and fostering inclusiveness, in particular in relation to women and youth, namely: infrastructure services (transport and energy), financial services and tourism services.

Objective

The Train-the-Trainers Seminar seeks to support African member States to acquire the necessary skillset to measure and monitor services trade value chains.
