No wp-2020-145, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Using the South African Revenue Service and National Treasury firm-level panel data for 2009-17, this paper investigates how global value chain-related trade affects the export performance of manufacturing firms in South Africa. In particular, the paper uses extant classifications of internationally traded products to identify different categories of global value chain-related products and compares the productivity premium of international traders for these different categories.
