Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review


This paper extends the analytical framework developed by Kueh and Voon (1997) for reconciling the bilateral trade balance claims between China and the United States. The background to the problem involved is familiar: goods which are manufactured in the Chinese hinterland by or on behalf of Hong Kong manufacturers (or Sino-HK joint ventures) based in China and then exported by way of the HKSAR to the US, are treated in the official US statistics as Chinese exports to the US.
