|Abstract:||The thesis provides a detailed decomposition of Slovak bilateral exports in the automotive
industry and shows the development of global value chains participation in the scope of the
Visegrad group. The first part, bilateral sectoral decomposition, examines shares of the
domestic & foreign value added components as well as a double-counted term in Slovak exports
to the global biggest economies. Moreover, it determines the origin of the foreign value added
embodied in Slovak exports and final destinations, where the Slovak value added is absorbed.
The second part determines to what extent is Slovakia participating in global value chains as
well as Czechia, Poland and Hungary. The results obtained from this decomposition showcased
a decreasing share of the domestic value added, which is caused to some extent by integration
into these value chains as well as the character of Slovak production specialisation. Data series
provided proof of a long-term trend.
