Intra-industry trade refers to the exchange of products belonging to the same industry. The term is usually applied to international trade, where the same kinds of goods and services are both imported and exported. The intra-industry share of manufacturing trade has increased significantly across many Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries since the late 1980s. Central and Eastern European members of the OECD - especially the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary - are among the countries with high and growing intra-industry trade as a percentage of the total manufacturing trade. Recent years have also seen an increase in the intra–industry trade of these countries with China and the China Area, with special reference to China - Hong Kong and China - Macau.The aim of this paper is to present the results of the intra-industry trade phenomenon and its development during recent years between selected Central and Eastern European economies and the China Area, with special emphasis on the most advanced branches of textile and clothing manufacturing.
