New aspects of intra-industry trade in EU countries
AbstractUsing the HS eight-digit product level trade data of EU countries for the period 1988 â€“ 2010, we analyse Intra-industry trade within EU countries as well as with Eastern European countries and with China. We find the Eastern European countriesâ€™ rise up the quality ladder, and by contrast the substantially lower prices of Chinaâ€™s exports to EU countries vis-Ã -vis Chinaâ€™s imports from them. The contrast between EU trade with the Eastern European countries and with China is present even in very recent years.
