In: Fighting Irrelevance: The Role of Regional Trade Agreements in International Production Networks in Asia
AbstractThis chapter presents the results of five country case studies that explore linkages between IPNs and RTAs in three different sectors. The case studies focus on sectors in which IPNs are prevalent in the selected countries. The studies on China, India and Indonesia focus on the automotive industry. The study on Thailand covers the hard-disk drive industry while the Bangladesh study concentrates on the textile and clothing sector. This chapter begins with a brief description of the establishment of IPNs in East Asia in order to introduce the following sections on the automotive, hard disk drive, and textile and clothing sectors.
