Chinese Global Production Networks in ASEAN

  • Young-Chan Kim

Part of the Understanding China book series (UNCHI)

About this book


This volume examines the role of Chinese businesses and industries in Asian production networks.  By presenting different case studies of the Asian region, the contributors illustrate how China successfully exports the Chinese business model, based on Chinese ethics, social networks and production integration. The contributors also discuss topics such as the implications and ramifications of global product sharing within Asia; the prospects of free trade agreements in Asia; the economic advantages of Chinese family lineage and Guanxi − an influential Chinese network; collaboration of overseas Chinese with mainland Chinese, as well as direct Chinese business involvement and investment in other Asian countries.
