New Aspects of Intra-industry Trade in EU Countries
This paper discusses some new evidences on intra-industry trade (IIT). In particular, we focus on EU trade with Eastern European countries, using trade data at HS eight-digit product level for the period 1988 - 2010. Our findings include Eastern European countries' rise up the quality ladder, and by contrast, the substantially lower prices of China's exports to EU countries vis-a-vis China's imports from them. The contrast between EU trade with Eastern European countries and with China is present even in recent years.
