Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research 【 display / non-display

  • The Impact of Global Value Chain Participation on Attracting Greenfield FDI: A Sectoral Analysis

    Grant number:22K01455  2022.4 - 2024.3

    Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research(C)

    Investigator(s):PARSONS, Craig

      More details

    Econometric estimations of the effect of GVC participation on inward FDI will be made. Preliminary results will be presented at international conferences abroad as well at seminars and conferences held in Japan. After receiving feedback at conferences, we
    will improve our methodology (e.g. controlling for endogeneity.) After sectoral difference are investigated, we will more closely investigate the differences across regions, in particular, in East Asia, North America, and Europe. The final project should result in two or three papers published in international journals.

  • Does Inward FDI Create Comparative Advantage or is it Attracted to it?

    Grant number:19K01600  2019.4 - 2021.3

    Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research  Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research(C)

    Investigator(s):Parsons, Craig

      More details

    Grant type:Competitive

    This research project will answer a long-standing puzzle in International Economics. The puzzle is, whether or not Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is attracted to host countries that already have a Comparative Advantage in the same sector, or whether instead, FDI changes and creates new Comparative Advantage in the host country in the sector of investment. The question will be answered using a global database of all new FDI transactions together with new estimates of the frontier econometric method to determine a country`s true Comparative Advantage.

    Venue:Online Virtual (originally planned to be held live in Tokyo)  

    A new regression-based Revealed Comparative Advantage index is used to analyze Vietnam's exports. Vietnam now has the highest comparative advantage in electronics in the world. It suggests that Vietnam may be a new follower in the “flying geese" style and reinforces the Kojima (2000) view that sufficient inward FDI can change comparative advantage. With detailed FDI and local data, we estimate that this change was brought about by a massive surge of inward FDI amounting to 6% of GDP. Lastly, we opine that while the comparative advantage in footwear may decline, that in electronics may be here to stay.
