Measuring global value chains

Finished ESSnet project

The overall objective of the ESSnet is to strengthen ESS capacity (conceptually and methodologically) to measure economic globalisation and the globalisation of business and to concretely establish statistical evidence on the increasingly globalised ways of doing business and organisation of the enterprises and the impacts on the possibilities for Europe to create new jobs and sustainable growth. This will enable the policy makers to make better informed decision and to monitor the globalisation/ internationalisation of economies by developing and providing indicators on economic globalisation
