We investigate whether the exports of manufactured products by the South Asian and South East Asian countries have been negatively affected by the rise of China. Using a panel data approach, we find that increases in world market shares of China are statistically correlated with declines in world market shares for some Asian countries since 1994, but not before 1994.
