No RP2008-101, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)
China's engagement in the so-called international fragmentation of production - namely 'cross-border dispersion of component production/assembly within vertically integrated manufacturing industries' - has become an increasingly important form of its economic integration into the regional as well as the global economy. The paper presents the recent trend of trade in parts and components between China and its main trading partners.
