The Role of China in Regional South-South Trade in Asia-Pacific: Prospects for industrialization of the low-income countries
The author provides an alternative for the rationale for South-South trade as a vehicle for industrialization and development of developing countries in Asia-Pacific region as the literature on this issue is not satisfactory. Further, refuting the “de-coupling” thesis—that is, the East Asian countries are decoupled from the business cycle in developed countries—he analyses the merits and shortcomings of China’s regional trade with its partners in the region. Moreover, considering the growing weight of China in the global production network and international trade he proposes policies for the future of industrialization and development of the partner countries for strengthening the role of China as a growth “pole”. He suggest, inter alia, the need for industrial collaboration among the low-income countries, which benefit less than others from the dynamics of the Chinese economy as a “hub” complemented by adjustment assistance by China and NIEs. He also proposes technological cooperation among other main partner countries which are involved in production sharing in a limited number of electric and electronic products for exportation to the third markets in developed countries. The aim is to upgrade their industrial structure, and reduce their vulnerability to changes in the economic strategy of China and the business cycles in developed countries.
