This project empirically examines how the networks of firms, such as supply-chain networks and industrial-academic-government collaboration, are formulated and how they affect the economy, using firm-level data, such as those for firms affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake and the 2011 Thailand floods and for small and micro enterprises in less developed countries. From these analyses, this project aims at providing new academic findings on firm networks that can promote economic growth and improve social welfare as well as policy implications based on these findings.
