We aim to study the way in which regional financial institutions contribute to the improvement of employment and income in the local economy. Specifically, we will conduct a survey of those who work to revitalize the regional economy (e.g., bank staff) in order to investigate how cooperation functions among financial institutions, local governments, various commerce organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce, and academic organizations such as universities, as such cooperation is crucial in revitalizing the regional economy. Also, we will investigate the effect of the action of the regional financial institutions on the local economy, evaluate the efforts of government policies that aim to enhance the function of the regional finance, such as the enlargement of the credit guarantee system and the injection of public funds, and analyze the corporate governance of regional financial institutions as well as the reorganization of regional financial institutions.
