The trade-investment nexus: A regional analysis

It is generally believed that the openness of the newly industrializing economies (NIEs) and some of the ASEAN-4 countries has contributed to the overall efficiency and rapid growth of their economies. The trade orientation of these economies attracted a substantial amount of foreign investment which, in turn, although difficult to quantify precisely, partially fuelled their remarkable export dynamism. Thus, the combination of relatively open trade and investment policies had feedback effects which worked to enhance the economic performance of these countries.
