Knowledge spillovers through international supply chains

Roberta Piermartini and Stela Rubínová

No ERSD-2014-11, WTO Staff Working Papers from World Trade Organization (WTO), Economic Research and Statistics Division

Abstract: We also show that the evidence that knowledge spillovers flow along the supply chains is more robust than the traditional finding that knowledge spillovers depend on geographical distance or trade flows. Our findings support policies that favour participation in supply chains to foster economic development, but also show that potential gains depend on the type of participation.
