Abstract

In this paper we first document the growing importance of intra-East Asian trade in parts and components and capital goods facilitated by foreign direct investment (FDI). Japanese direct investment has a stronger influence on intra-East Asian trade relative to FDI from France and Germany. It is related to the roles of small and medium enterprises in the Japanese FDI in East and Southeast Asia.

Keywords: French FDI, German FDI, Japanese FDI, East and Southeast Asian Trade
