The primary motivation for developing RIETI-TID was the necessity of analyzing the economic integration of East Asia, reflecting progress in the international division of labor. Creating a database that covers all trade commodity goods and classifies the trade data according to each production stage will make a solid contribution to policymaking. In order to better understand East Asia's manufacturing industry from the viewpoint of trends in trade, all trade goods were classified according to the integrated classification of Japan's input-output table and organized by production process for each industry. We expect to make further improvements to RIETI-TID going forward.
