This empirical analysis of the intra-industry trade of the EU-15 with ten central and eastern European countries (Bulgaria,Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia) and five Mediterranean partner countries (Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey) during the period 1989-2004 uses the unadjusted GrubelLloyd and the Greenaway-Hine-Milner indexes. Trade similarities and differences are analyzed as well as sectoral competition between the two regions. This approach is used to infer the impact of recent liberalization processes and EU's enlargment on these regions.
