Global Country Ranking:Trade Exposure to the Chinese Economy
- This report focuses on assessing countries’ relative vulnerability to slowing economic growth in China based on their reliance on bilateral trade with China. Vietnam, Malaysia, Laos, Singapore, and South Korea form the global top-5 of our Chinese trade exposure-ranking, reflecting the proximity to the vast Chinese market and deeply integrated regional supply chains. Large differences in trade dependence with China exist in Asia-Pacific. Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, and Japan are significantly less exposed to weaker import demand in China than most of their regional peers. Chile and Peru appear relatively high in the ranking compared to many other countries outside Asia-Pacific, reflecting China’s interest in their natural resources.
