Offshoring (foreign direct investment and foreign outsourcing) has played a crucial role in recent globalization. Offshoring affects both domestic and foreign production, employment, research and development (R&D), etc. Thus, it is useful for policymaking to investigate both the determinants and effects of offshoring. The objective of this research project is to explore offshoring to deepen the understanding of globalization and trade and industrial policies and obtain useful policy implications for the Japanese economy.
