Builds a model of two types of Chinese exports, those processed and assembled from imported inputs ("processed" exports (PE)) and "non-processed" exports (NPE). When the source of the increase in the Chinese real exchange rate (CRER) is appreciation against the currencies of other emerging Asian trading partners, the effect on PE is positive but insignificant, while the effect on NPE is negative. By contrast, when the source of the increase in the CRER is appreciation against China's advanced-economy trading partners, the effects on both types of exports are negative.

The growing U.S. trade deficit is a source of concern to everyone. This study identifies 18 obstacles or disincentives to American exports.
