This report explores the impact of transport infrastructure and services availability and efficiency on GVCs connectivity. It also assesses whether the Arab region meets the necessary requirements of infrastructure, logistics, and trade facilitation, to be able to participate meaningfully in GVCs.

However, as this report explicitly focuses only on the role of transport infrastructure and policies; therefore, providing a full account of the many possible effects of GVC engagement on the Arab region is beyond the scope of this report.
