Abstract

This paper examines the competitiveness of industries in six Asian countries - China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan - using the World Input-Output Database tables from 1995 to 2011. Competitiveness is measured by the value-added that industries contribute to the production of final goods, which we refer to as global value chain (GVC) income, rather than by gross exports. We find that, unlike EU countries, Asian countries have generally been able to combine increasing GVC job opportunities with a rise in real income. The GVC income in Asian countries presents a different picture to that in European countries.
