* Abstract

This study calculates the ASEAN’s trade linkages with other regional blocs and countries to find characteristics of this regional bloc. Then, the paper evaluates competitiveness of the member countries as well as rival countries such as China, Japan and Korea at the industry level. For this purpose, trade indices (value-added RCA, value-added market share and value-added IIT), calculated from OECD’s ICIOT (Inter-Country-Input-Output-Tables), are used. Finally, ASEAN member countries’ gross exports in the main exporting industries are decomposed into domestic value-added absorbed abroad (DVA), domestic valued returned home (RDV) and foreign value-added (FVA) according to the decomposition scheme by Wang, Wei and Zhu (2013) to identify the GVC features of the ASEAN’s trades.
