Integration of International Trade in Fisheries Export: ASEAN 6 + China Accession The ACFTA

Dylla Oktavia A, Lukman Hakim


Free trade with an export-oriented strategy has an important meaning in the economic development of a country. The validity of trade cooperation between CAFTA, SAFTA, DFQF, and DCFTA shows an increase in exports for each of its members. Other discoveries found that the integration effect had not to effect significantly to the exports and some had the potential to produce a negative effect with declining exports. The main objective of this study is to determine the relationship of economic integration with the fisheries sector in ASEAN 6+China in ACFTA. This study uses a panel data model by comparing the impact in 2001-2009 before the enactment of ACTA and 2010-2018 after the enactment of ACFTA. The estimation result before the enactment of ACFTA shows that import and GDP variables have a significant effect on export. The import variable is positively related to the export variable, while the GDP variable has a negative effect on exports. The estimation result of import variables after ACFTA shows no significant effect on exports, while the GDP variable has a negative effect on the export. Inflation and interest rate have a positive effect on export.
