Gary Gereffi, Professor emeritus and Duke Global Value Chains Center Founding Director and Danny Hamrick, MIDP Director of Admissions and DCID Research affiliate recently presented their research on supply chain challenges and responses in North Carolina to the Triangle chapter of the North Carolina World Trade Association (NCWTA). The NCWTA brings together federal and state level policy makers and private sector representatives to discuss how to best promote and support North Carolina firms.

Building on Gereffi’s July 15, 2021 U.S. Senate testimony, Gereffi and Hamrick presented on current supply chain issues for the United States and North Carolina as well as showcased the website “North Carolina in the Global Economy,” a 12-year research project of the Duke Global Value Chains Center. The talk and website explore select industries key to the North Carolina economy and how NC firms are positioned in the global economy as well as avenues to maintain or enhance market competitiveness. In addition to the NCWTA presentation, Gereffi and Hamrick teach these topics in the MIDP seminar, Global Value Chain Analysis.
