The main driving forces of this integration is globalization, because of which economic and financial activity across borders bread in faster rate. Gravity models and Optimum Currency Area theory somehow better explain the extremity of economic and financial linkages between countries whether bilaterally or multilaterally There is increasing evidence of a self-reinforcing mechanism to regional integration, these gather strengths and power and relies on economic, political and institutional support.
As trade and capital integration increases various macro and micro economic factors plays important role and sometimes works as barriers in the way of fostering regional integration. The initial motivation and driving forces always been a major catalytic events for regional integration-a political or military crisis, financial crisis, resource crisis, capital crisis or common endowments related to common shocks, which tells that the nation states are not individually capable of dealing with this issues.
ELI neighboring regions: Commonwealth of independent states(CLC), which is very close proximate of EX. which is formed after the dissolution of soviet union has gradually spreading its wings in this area and it is optimistic able that, it will gain pace in he coming years with higher economic stability. For the region south and South east of the EX., Middle east and North Africa, economic integration is traditionally low in this region because of some economic and political reasons and they mainly exports outside their area ,so intra-region trade is given little priority.
The most advanced of these groups is ICC East Asia: The Asian financial crisis 1997-98 is the main propel of deeper and closer economic integration in South-East and East Asia. SEAN and APES plays pivotal role as regional integration in this area. The Key Paper: Market-driven regional integration in East Asia Issue Aspidistra and Sharon Yamaha The motivations for regional integration The motivations for regional integration in both Europe and East Asia were initially similar in that they were both political in nature.
In EX., and East Asia, to increase the political cooperation, economic interdependence was thought to be the most effective means. In practically, EX. is successful because of integration where there still remain some matter of disputes between some nation like France and England, everyone separate business and trade issue from the political conflicts and move into higher integration. East Asia has been weaken because countries have preserve their respective national interests.
Rupee’s regional institutions Member states have delegated some of their decision-making power to these regional institutions so that decisions on specific matters of joint interest can be made through a democratic process. “Institutional triangle” is responsible for producing the policies and laws that apply throughout the European Union. European law is currently treaty based. Decision-making authority now covers a wide swath Of European society, including labor and employment, education, health, crime, taxes, economic policy, transportation, and others.
East Sais’s regional institutions East Sais’s efforts to formalize regional cooperation varied but not very successful. T he region’s early efforts at institutional development were complicated by (1) the heterogeneity of many political, economic, and social aspects of the region, (2) political tensions between certain countries historically, (3) the desire to protect national interests and specific industries for example, agriculture and automobiles), and (4) Sais’s historical openness in trade and FED.
SEAN, which includes 10 nations, is probably the best known and most active regional institution in East Asia. Industrial cooperation was intended to shift the focus of industrialization from a national level to a regional level. Regional agreements The broad regional integration frameworks like the European Union and NONFAT, there are narrower regional arrangements formed between two or more countries that are another form of government-led cooperation. SEAN spooned to an environment of increasing regionalism in the world.
Interest in forming regional arrangements has accelerated in East Asia. Rupee’s integration has been driven by governments and their policies through the creation of powerful regional institutions. Market-driven regional integration in East Asia Trade and foreign direct investment are closely linked as important elements in cross border production networks, which are the foundation of market-led integration in East Asia. All the developing countries of East Asia have experienced significant growth in exports since the East Asian crisis.
For low- income countries the growth rate in all three levels of technology manufactures A major contributing factor to the change in the export patterns global production sharing. Intraregional trade East Sais’s trade has been characterized as both global and regional. Reflecting the global aspect, all SEAN countries reported over 1 0 percent of their trade Compared with those of the European Union, Sais’s intraregional flows make up a smaller, but increasing, share of total flows. There has been a noticeable shift intraregional in flows away from the SEAN countries to China.
Cross-border production networks facilitate regional integration in East Asia Cross-border production networks are the focus of much analysis. In recent years, production networks have expanded to include many countries in the production of a single product. Trade in parts and components The assembly trade (exports and imports) of East Asia is heavily concentrated in electronics and electrical products. Over 80 percent of the region’s total trade in 2000 was in parts and accessories of office machinery, telecommunications equipment electrical circuit apparatus, and household electrical equipment.
