Abstract

This work sets out to empirically test what kind of relationship, if any, exists between three variables which are playing an ever-important role in international trade theory and patterns. These are intra-industry trade (IIT), foreign direct investment (FDI) and intrafirm trade (IFT). The three variables are detailed and examined in the case of South Korean trade and investment patterns with both the United States (US) and the European Union (EU-27) over an 18 year period from 1991 to 2008. The pattern of intra-industry trade is examined using the Grubel and Lloyd index of intraindustry trade and Brülhart ‗A‘ index of marginal intra-industry trade calculated from export and import data at the SITC 5-digit level of disaggregation. A sample population of industries at the 5-digit level are presented; and an empirical analysis of the South Korean US patterns finds a positive relationship between both IIT and MIIT and time.
