The work of Patrick Low and Julia Tijaja is featured in Section 7 of this book. In 7 Increasing value from global value chain participation: What role for industrial policy? the authors consider how older industrial policies in Asia might be updated, an approach which aims to highlight that the industrial policy debate is a good deal older than the current global value chain phenomenon. The approach taken in the paper is first to identify what has changed or perhaps become more prominent in contemporary production arrangements and then to consider different industrial policy approaches.
