Abstract: The influence of Greater China (including China, Hong Kong, Macau & Taiwan) in the global T & C trade has been remarkable in the past two decades with the impressive intra-trade of the region contributing significantly to this development. The substantial T & C intra-trade activity, one of the most persuasive indications that reflected the process of integration for the industry among the four places, is basically the result of relocation of manufacturing bases from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan to China to exploit offshore production. In fact, the T & C industries across the region have co-operated progressively based on mutual benefits in parallel with their economic integration since the open door policy of China. The mechanism of this developmental process can be explained by the concepts of intra-firm trade and the flying-geese pattern which illustrate the phenomenon of trade development and production shifting for the regional T & C industry in order to sustain competitiveness. It is anticipated that the complementary intra-trade of T & C in the region will continue to prosper in the foreseeable future with China’s accession to the WTO, the phasing of the MFA in 2005 and the deepening economic integration for the four Chinese economies as the Greater China entity.
