This chapter examines the impact of free trade agreements (FTAs) on foreign trade in East Asia. It reviews recent developments in FTAs and analyzes trade and protection patterns in East Asia. The analysis reveals that the effects of regional arrangements are positive for members but can adversely affect outsiders even though the actual effects on trade patterns may be small in practice. The result also indicates that the sectors with a comparative advantage increase output and those with strong protection increase exports.
