METHODOLOGY OF RESEARCHING GLOBAL VALUE CHAINS
As a result of researches of theoretical and methodological basis of formation and consolidation of the functioning of the global value chain (GVC), it was determined that they are both operational (tactical) and strategic. The authors have come to a conclusion that terminology of the theories of GVC has changed in terms of transformation of the world economic system, but in the future it’s restoration will not be characterized by certain qualitative changes. It has been proved that the main problems arise due to the underestimation of the role and importance of economic policy and growth patterns of cooperating countries. It has been substantiated that the methodology of GVC analysis should be based on shift from evaluation of the factors of participating in the value-added trade to the analysis of the strategy of entering to the GVC and further improvement of the process.
