More broadly, both types of contracting arrangements are forms of non-equity modes of production (UNCTAD, 2011). The benefits as well as costs for producers participating in one GVC as compared to another are essentially contingent on how the integration process of producers with this type of trade is managed. This is related to the associated governance structures of GVCs, that is, the contractual linkages that exist between independent firms or farms. These internal governance structures between firms may in turn be affected and influenced by external governance structures determined by governments.
