Abstract

This paper analyses the contribution to and engagement in global supply chains of Asian emerging economies by measuring several globalisation indicators based on the harmonised input-output and bilateral trade databases developed by the OECD. It focuses on major structural changes in the Asian trade network from the perspective of integration and fragmentation in global supply chains. It shows that greater fragmentation and higher dependence on supplies of intermediate goods and services from neighbouring countries have gone hand-in-hand and led to deepening economic integration between ASEAN and East Asia. ASEAN policy makers, therefore, need to consider their integration strategies from the perspective of the whole East Asian region and not just among ASEAN countries themselves. L'évolution récente de l'intégration économique en asie : La mesure de l'intégration des échanges et de la fragmentation Ce document analyse la contribution et la participation des économies asiatiques émergentes et en développement aux chaînes d’approvisionnement mondiales, en mesurant plusieurs indicateurs de la mondialisation établis d’après la base de données entrées-sorties et la base de données sur les échanges bilatéraux constituées par l’OCDE, après leur harmonisation. Il porte en particulier sur les évolutions structurelles majeures intervenues dans les échanges intra-asiatiques, sous l’angle de l’intégration et de la fragmentation dans les chaînes d’approvisionnement mondiales. Il démontre que l’intensification de la fragmentation et la dépendance accrue vis-à-vis des approvisionnements en biens intermédiaires et en services auprès de pays voisins sont allées de pair avec le renforcement, qu’elles ont d’ailleurs entraîné, de l’intégration économique au sein de l’ANASE et en Asie de l’Est. Les résultats présentés dans ce document, qui s’appuient sur des données concrètes, ont des répercussions significatives sur les stratégies d’intégration économique régionale mises en oeuvre dans la région Asie-Pacifique. Les pays membres de l’ANASE doivent en particulier envisager leur stratégie de renforcement de l’intégration à l’échelle de l’Asie de l’Est dans son ensemble, et pas uniquement à celle de l’ANASE à proprement parler.
