The aim of this project is to pin down key factors for firm growth from various firm activities. Specifically, using firm-, establishment-, or item-level micro data, this project conducts empirical analyses on the relationship between firm growth and (1) research and development (R&D) and innovation and (2) overseas activities. This project further analyzes the relationship between firm productivity and industrial development with special attention given to resource misallocation among firms and industries.
