Financial integration in East Asia and Pacific: regional and interregional linkages

No 126031, Research and Policy Briefs from The World Bank

Abstract: During the last two decades, economies in East Asia and Pacific have been integrating internationally through trade and financial investments. One trend is puzzling. Whereas most of the trade integration has been within the region, most of the financial integration has been with countries outside the region. However, a closer examination of investment types shows that therelative lack of regional financial connectivity occurs mostly in equity, bonds, and bank syndicated loans (in so-called arm?s length investments). The region is much more connected through foreign direct investment (FDI) (through both mergers and acquisitions and greenfield investments).
