EU-Asia Free Trade Areas? Economic and Policy Considerations

Published By: Asian Development Bank Institute | Published Date: November, 22 , 2010

This paper analyses key aspects of the changing economic relationship between the European Union (EU) and Asia, and explored the potential economic ramifications of deeper EU-Asian economic cooperation. The paper also investigated the possible costs to the EU of remaining “disengaged” from the Asian integration process and the likely impact of multi-nested EU-Asian trade agreements. The empirical review of CGE models revealed trivial effects of several possible EU-Asian accords (e.g., EU-India, EU-ASEAN, EU-Republic of Korea). [ADBI Working Paper Series No. 255] URL: []
