Abstract: The main aim of this article is to assess the implications of involvement in global value chains (GVC) on sectoral productivity growth from the international perspective. Our panel data analysis covers 40 countries, 20 industries (13 manufacturing and 7 services sectors) in the period 1995–2011. Estimation results suggest that there is a positive link between TFP growth and the involvement of sectors in global value chains (measured as a share of foreign value added in exports). In particular, positive impact of foreign value added on TFP growth takes place mainly in manufacturing sectors. The results are robust to changes in productivity growth measurement.
