This project aims to set policy-oriented research agenda on corporate finance, banking, and firm dynamics including the behavior of interfirm relationships and to implement empirical studies on them. Thepolicy-oriented research agenda includes the behavior of financially-distressed firms after the introduction of the Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) Finance Facilitation Act, the role of government-affiliated financial institutions during the crisis period, and the role of equity financing for firms' entry, growth, and restructuring. The project also examines other research topics as well and derives relevant policy implications. These topics include the interaction between the real estate market and the macro economy and the network-motivated lending decision by banks.
