India: A New Player in Asian Production Networks?

image of India: A New Player in Asian Production Networks?
While the IPN phenomenon has accelerated trade and investment linkages between countries in East and South-East Asia, the remainder of the region has not matched those countries in this process. The objective of this study is to explore the reasons for this by using India’s performance in the Asian IPNs as a case study for other countries that are trailing behind in this area. The study seeks to identify the reasons why India has performed below its potential in this new form of international division of labour, even though that country possess several supportive factors including: (a) the sheer size of the economy and population; (b) a large pool of engineers; (c) relatively sound intellectual property protection; and (d) an increasingly open trade and investment climate resulting from progressive economic reforms.

Driving forces of Asian international production networks: A brief history and theoretical perspectives

During the past three decades, the process of global production sharing has created a new form of division of labour between Asian economies, especially in East and Southeast Asia. The rapid growth of production networks has dramatically transformed patterns of production and international trade in the region, with a notable expansion of intra-regional trade “through multiple border crossings of parts and components” (figure 3).
