Who in Asean exports to Japan most?
Of ASEAN countries, which are most dependent on Japan for exports? Check out this chart from The Economist which shows Brunei’s exports of US$3 billion per year (28% of its GDP) and Malaysia’s $15.5 (18% of GDP) as having the highest exposure to any changes brought by Japan’s recent disasters. That’s not to say they’re in most danger though, as Brunei’s oil and natural gas and Malaysian timber will likely play a large role in Japan’s reconstruction. At greater risk are Singapore ($12.3 billion/7% of GDP) and Thailand ($15.7 billion/6% of GDP), also large exporters, but who also rely on Japanese made components for manufacturing.
