Abstract: 
The segmentation of global manufacturing and services provided China and subsequently India with a golden opportunity to make full use of their absolute advantage low cost yet educated labour to integrate into the world economy within a comparatively shorter period of time than some earlier industrialisers. Though international trade functioned as a vent of surplus in view of the narrowness of their domestic markets at the beginning of their economic catch-up, the label of export-led model may not reflect the real picture as imports underwent dramatic increases during their respective growth periods, in particular for China.
