The purpose of this chapter is to examine the pace and pattern of development of China's new industries, as they may bear on the regional production networks in East Asia. Two new industries are selected for the study, and they are the electronics and information technology (IT) industry and the automobile industry respectively. This chapter thereby tries to trace the development of the two Chinese industries, focusing on the role of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and their exports records or export potentials. The relative strengths of the Chinese electronics and IT industry as an exporter are estimated in detail, specifically vis-à-vis that of neighbouring economies. It also looks into how the smaller neighbouring economies cope with the impact from China and exploit the niches offered by the emerging new regional production networks.

Keywords:   Foreign direct investment (FDI), Information technology (IT), Automobile industry, Electronics, Regional production, Exports, China
