A study on the impact of China - US trade to Malaysia export volume in the United States / Afifah Abd Wahid

Abd Wahid, Afifah (2012) A study on the impact of China - US trade to Malaysia export volume in the United States / Afifah Abd Wahid. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


China’s rapid economic growth has caused as much alarm to its Southeast Asian neighbors as has the growth of its military prowess. Politicians and academics alike in Southeast Asia have expressed fears that the sustained expansion of the Chinese economy will harm the economic prospects of the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). This paper aims to examine the impact of China’s rapid export growth expansion on Malaysia export trade with the rest of the world. However, to simplify the research paper, the researcher narrowed it down to one market only in which both Malaysia and China have the biggest export volume and similar industry which is the United States of America (U.S.).
The researcher have selected Malaysia export volume as the dependent variable and China’s export volume, export price, market share and exchange rates in the U.S. as the independent variables. In this paper, the researcher found that there is a significant relationship between Malaysia export volume and the factors from China in the United States. Changes from China have significantly impact Malaysia export volume. The researcher also found that Malaysia export volume to U.S. has most significantly impacted by China’s exchange rate.
