By being able to understand what specific benefits exist in joining an economic block, we are able to understand why ASEAN has both benefited and challenged China. Those who support free trade agreements or economic blocs feel that there are many advantages for a country to become a member to at least one of the many trade agreements that exist.

Over the last two decades, the Chinese economy has experienced significant economic growth due to globalisation. Globalisation is responsible for reducing the barriers to trade and increasing the integration between different countries and economies. The reduction of trade barriers as well as the increased integration between different countries and economies resulted in an increase in foreign investment and international trading which leads to economic growth. China has experienced significant increases in international trading and investment flows.

(Irwin, 2002) Thanks to the emerging market like China, outsourcing of production processes became possible and led to a rise in both advanced nations and emerging nations. Tracing back the evolution of the theory of global trade, Adam Smith indicated that one country would have an absolute advantage over the other if it can produce the same amount of goods with few resources. (Smith, 1776) Besides, in Smith’s England once time, with the rapid growth of large-scale industries and captive markets in overseas colonies, had a solid base for lower labor costs and higher efficiency in production, which ensured its competition across the world at that time. Another English economist, David Ricardo (1951) suggested that industry specialization combined with free trade produces positive results. It was the comparative and not absolute advantage, which was considered necessary to ensure mutually profitable trade across nations regarding labor hours used per unit of
