Empirical Analysis of Global Activities and Transaction Networks of Japanese Firms

Project Leader/Sub-Leader

TOMIURA Eiichi (Faculty Fellow)



This project analyzes the following two themes.

First, we conduct a unique survey on majority-owned affiliates of large Japanese firms to improve measurements of performance of globalizing firms.

Second, based on a large dataset, we analyze such issues as the impacts of globalization on domestic transaction networks, the impacts of changing transaction networks on manufacturing, and the shift toward service within manufacturing industries.
