Granularity in trade in value-added data for key sectors

« Back to All Projects

Overview

This project’s aim is to produce and analyse data which will allow the identification of the precise industries most likely to be vulnerable to a loss of single market membership.

Lead: Giordano Mion (Sussex)

Co-Leads: Monique Ebell (NIESR) and Sylaja Srinivasan (NIESR, Bank of England)

Expected end date: Q4 2018/2019

Objectives: The aim of this research proposal is to produce and analyse data which will allow the identification of the precise industries most likely to be vulnerable to a loss of single market membership. Currently, data on services trade in value-added in particular is not sufficiently granular to permit this. It is necessary to better understand the importance of each sub-industry for the domestic economy and also their position in national and international supply chains, so as to quantify knock-on effects of any loss in exports on domestic suppliers.

Project code: 2.4
