The Effect of Exchange Rate Changes on Trade in East Asia

Published By: ADBI on eSS | Published Date: January, 01 , 2011

This paper considers how exchange rates affect East Asian trade. The evidence indicates that exports produced within regional production networks depend on exchange rates throughout the region while labor-intensive exports depend on exchange rates in the exporting country. These results make sense since the majority of the value-added of processed exports come from imported parts and components while most of the value-added of labor-intensive exports comes from the domestic economy.
