Working on behalf of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), Rütter Soceco, now part of EBP, joined up with the Swiss company INFRAS to examine the development of Switzerland’s position in the global value chains. We analyzed the extent to which Swiss value added and jobs depend on demand in other countries and how this dependence has changed over time. We also investigated the ways in which Switzerland profits from its integration in the global value chains.
- Integration of the Swiss input-output table (IOT) into a multiregional input-output model (MultiREG)
- Empirical evaluation of Switzerland’s position in the global value chains using the MultiREG model
- Completion of simulation calculations to assess the changes between 2001 and 2008 and the overall benefits of integration in the global value chains
