We have added a new feature in WITS application, Global Value Chain (GVC) to analyze countries’ participation on three global value chains: apparel and footwear, electronics, and automotive goods.  This new feature helps the user to track GVCs at the sector and product level, revealing their linkages at different stages of the production process and across countries and regions
After login (https://wits.worldbank.org/WITS/WITS/Restricted/Login.aspx) to WITS, Global Value Chain (GVC) module is available under the Advanced Query Menu option.  For more information on this module, refer the below resources
