    Abstract

    Over the last two decades, the global industrial landscape has been dramatically reshaped by profound structural and technological transformations. Global and regional production networks have redesigned the sectoral composition of economies as well as the geography of production and international trade. Sectoral boundaries have become increasingly blurred, as a result of processes of outsourcing and industrial re-organisation along multi-tiered supply chains. The migration of production to lower-cost countries, via relocation or outsourcing, has created challenges and opportunities for continuing operations in higher-cost countries, in services as well as manufacturing (Milberg and Winkler, 2013; Gereffi and Lee, 2016; Lee et al., 2017; Merino, 2017). Technological change has also played a critical role in triggering forms of ‘genetic mutation’ of traditional sectors and their boundaries.
