Overview

This project empirically analyzes corporate globalization activities in the era of digitization. The primary target is the data gathering by a survey on Japanese firms for understanding the current state of cross-border data transfers. Based on firm-level data, we also analyze various globalization activities, such as exporting, foreign direct investment, offshore outsourcing, intra-firm trade, and trade intermediation.
