This research project empirically studies four subjects: (i) the effect of Chinese consumers' boycott of Japanese trade and internationalization of firms, (ii) the effect of Chinese competition policy on firms' strategy in the mobile phone market, (iii) the effect of Chinese anti-dumping policy on firms' behavior in China and Japan, and (iv) analysis of a nation's preference of trade liberalization and acceptance of immigrants. The results are expected to provide evidence that would be useful for the formation of industry and trade policy in Japan.
