Since their model specifications, especially those for the centrifugal force, differ from those of Krugman and Elizondo (1996) and its variants (Alonso-Villar 1999, 2001; Mansori 2003), their models lead to different conclusions. e. the pull of a dispersed rural market), and lowering international transportation costs then induces the concentration of economic activities in the core. Note that in the core–periphery model, if interregional transportation costs are low, firms located in the periphery confront competition from the large market more directly, so that remaining in the periphery is not profitable.

As a result, these metropolises are not only the most populated cities (with substantial forces for agglomeration) but are also close to frontier regions. It is, therefore, possible that industries have been even more attracted to these regions after trade liberalization. In contrast, the capital of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, is located inland, so that different forces may work to disperse industrial activities away from Phnom Penh. • Vietnam shares borders with three countries—China, Laos, and Cambodia—but the impact of China’s economy appears overwhelmingly large.
