Abstract:     
This paper examines the implications of cross-border production fragmentation in the context of regional integration, using both general- and partial-equilibrium approaches. It shows the conditions under which fragmentation converts a trade-diverting FTA into a trade creating one. It assesses the effect of fragmentation on the balance of payments and the sensitivity of trade flows to exchange-rate changes.
