"How FDI influences the triangular trade pattern among China, East Asia and the U.S.? A CGE analysis of the sector of Electronics in China"
by Zhou, Jing and Maria Latorre

Rationale and Objective:

The impact of triangular trade among China, East Asia and the U.S. has raised much interest. Particular attention has been devoted to the pattern of collaboration (Haddad, 2007) or competition (Gaulier et al., 2007) through FDI (foreign direct investment) or trade. Some authors have focused on free trade agreements and trade policy to explain the regional integration. One important conclusion is that trade liberalization policy has accelerated the transition of East Asia (Kitwiwattanachai et al., 2009; Kawai and Wignaraja, 2008; Hufbauer and Schott, 2009).

Other studies have paid attention to production networks, as well as processing trade, vertical specialization, domestic export content, triangular trade and production networks among China, East Asia itself and the U.S. (Wang, et al., 2009; Ma and van Assche, 2010; Xing and Detert, 2010; Koopman, et al., 2010). Indeed, there is considerable evidence that East Asia imports from the U.S. high-tech parts, which are converted into key intermediates and latter exported to China, while China processes and finally exports the finished goods to the U.S. The U.S., indeed, is the main export market for Asian finished goods and has been playing a significant role in this network.
