  1. Each row in this table corresponds to a single equation in the VAR system for a relation between China and the country identified in the lefthand side column. The nature of the relation (trade or political) is stated in the title of the table. A non-empty cell in the table denotes a statistically-significant (p-value ≤0.05) finding between a variable involving China and a country other than the country indicated by the entry in the lefthand side column of the row in question. The nature of the variable is indicated by the contents of the cell (“to China” means exports to China, “from China” means imports from China, “relations” means the political relations). The country with which China has this particular relation is stated at the top of the column of the cell in question
