List of ETFs Focusing on Asia Listed on U.S. Exchanges

There is quite a diverse selection of ETFs focusing on the Asian region. Countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan often make up a significant percentage of the ETF but at times Japan is excluded from certain ETFs. The reason for this varies but often Japan makes up a significant percentage of ETFs when it is included and from an economy standpoint does not fit into the same classification (emerging markets) as the other Asian economies.
