Abstract

This think-piece will sketch GVCs in East Asia through trade statistics and narrative descriptions obtained by factory visits. It will consider such issues as weaknesses arising from the ‘Kanban’ (‘just-in-time’) production system, the impact of third-country (migrant) labor, and the implications of the TPP for East Asian GVCs.
