Abstract
From the perspective of global value chain, this paper divides the East Asian region’s dependencies in the global production division network into “upstream dependencies” and “final demand dependencies” according to Koopman’s GVC decomposition principle. We use OECD database to build two index systems of “relevance degree” and “final demand contribution rate” for empirical analysis. The analysis finds that in the “upstream dependence” level, the degree of internal dependency in East Asia as a whole is higher than external dependence. The economic links within the East Asian region within the global value chain are increasingly closer. China’s status as an upstream supplier in East Asia is rising, and Japan is declining. At the “end demand dependency” level, the East Asian region still has a certain degree of dependence on external Europe and the United States. However, this dependency relationship has shown a tendency of rising first and then decreasing. At the same time, China’s economic dependence on Japan and South Korea is decreasing, and Japan’s and South Korea’s economic dependence on China is deepening. This also means that China’s final demand has contributed to the economic growth of Japan and South Korea.
