Compilation and Analyses of Trade Indices in East Asia


This study aims to contribute to identifying the sources and structures of international trade in East Asia, where an increase in trade volumes through the opening of domestic markets and the relocation of production bases of multilateral firms are prominent. As the main analytical framework to achieve the above objectives, the construction, measurement, and analyses of various trade indices will be employed. The study also examines the theoretical and methodological issues of trade indices (features, data issues, etc.).
