This paper examines the impacts of regional trade agreements (rtas) on trade flows at product level, with a particular focus on trade creation and diversion based on estimation of the gravity equation, dealing with the zero trade flows and endogeneity bias problems, we analyse the impacts of various types of rtas. Using an unbalanced panel dataset of bilateral trade flows, we study the determinants of two-way trade for australia, china, india, japan, new zealand, korea and the ten asean countries from 1990 to 2009 we find that bilateral trade flow is positively related to the sum of the gdp of trading countries, and similarity in gdp.
