  • The impacts of export competition on international technology flows

    Kaoru Nabeshima, Mila Kashcheeva, Byeongwoo Kang

    Applied Economics Letters   25 ( 15 ) 1058 - 1061  2018.09

     View Summary

    Knowledge flow is a key to building technological capabilities. This article investigates how competition in international trade affects knowledge flow between countries using patent data and trade data for analysis. The main finding is that export competition in the third market (in our study, the US market) seems to have a positive impact on the flow of knowledge. The findings from this study contribute to the debate on ‘learning-by-exporting’.

  • NONCONVENTIONAL PROVISIONS IN REGIONAL TRADE AGREEMENTS: DO THEY ENHANCE INTERNATIONAL TRADE?

    Kazunobu Hayakawa, Fukunari Kimura, Kaoru Nabeshima

    JOURNAL OF APPLIED ECONOMICS   17 ( 1 ) 113 - 137  2014.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The scope of recent regional trade agreements (RTAs) has become much broader than before by the inclusion of nonconventional provisions such as those on competition policy and intellectual property rights protection. This paper empirically examines the extent to which those nonconventional provisions in RTAs enhance international trade between RTA member countries by estimating a gravity equation with detailed information on the contents of RTAs. We find that the provision for competition policy has the largest effect on international trade, followed by the government procurement provision. These two provisions have significant and positive impacts on intensive margin intensive margin (trade values per variety) and extensive margin (number of varieties traded)

     View Summary

    In a globalizing environment in which the competitiveness of firms and the economic prosperity of major urban centers hinges on technological dynamism and the capacity to nurture innovation, universities have an increasingly vital role. Beyond the traditional role of teaching, leading universities in middle and lower-middle income countries are finding that the need to enlarge or build research capabilities in basic research and also in technology development is being urged upon them by governments and by firms. This collection of papers charts progress to date indicates where it might be heading and assesses the pace and direction of change. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

  • Income and Health in Cities: the Messages from Stylized Facts

    Shahid Yusuf, Kaoru Nabeshima, Wei Ha

    JOURNAL OF URBAN HEALTH-BULLETIN OF THE NEW YORK ACADEMY OF MEDICINE   84 ( 1 ) I35 - I41  2007.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The benefits of good health to individuals and to society are strongly positive, and improving the health of the poor is a key millennium development goal (MDG). A typical health strategy advocated by some calls for increased public spending on health targeted to favor the poor backed by foreign assistance, combined with an international effort to perfect drugs and vaccines to ameliorate the major infectious diseases prevalent in developing nations. However, if the objective is better health outcomes at the least cost and a reduction in urban health inequity, our research suggests that the four most potent policy interventions are: improving access to clean water and sanitation; widely available primary care and health programs aimed at influencing diets and lifestyles; raising the level of education; and better urban land use and transport planning which contains urban sprawl and minimizes the trend towards sedentary living habits. The payoff from these four, in terms of health outcomes especially for those in low-income categories, dwarfs the returns from new drugs and curative hospital-based medicine, although these certainly have their place in a modern urban health system. We find, moreover, that the resource requirements for successful health care policies are likely to depend on an acceleration of economic growth rates, which increase household purchasing power and enlarge the pool of resources available to national and subnational governments to invest in and maintain health-related infrastructure and services. Thus, an acceleration of growth rates may be necessary to sustain a viable urban health strategy, which is equitable, and to ensure steady gains in health outcomes.

  • Creative industries in East Asia

    S Yusuf, K Nabeshima

    CITIES   22 ( 2 ) 109 - 122  2005.04  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Throughout East Asia, the growth process and its sources are changing in a number of important respects, especially for middle and higher income economies. Growth will increasingly come from the strength of innovative activities in these economies instead of factor accumulation as in the past. Recent research suggests that such innovative activities, especially in producer services and the creative industries, are concentrated in high-tech clusters in globally linked cities. The development of such cities is influenced by ongoing structural changes and initiatives by governments and firms. This paper explores these issues and suggests how policies and institutions can induce and furnish an urban environment that supports innovative activities that in turn lead to rapid growth.

     View Summary

    The research project examined impacts of product-related environmental regulations, which are often seen as non-tariff measures, introduced in an important market on policy of export countries, firm behavior, and flow of international trade. An edited volume ”Regulations and International Trade: New Sustainability Challenges in East Asia"(2017, Palgrave Macmillan) was published as the project output. The book focused on impacts of produce-related chemicals regulations introduced in developed countries and examined firms behavior in order to deal with regulations introduced in export markets and policy reactions in Asian countries.The research results were disseminated through Japanese academic journal articles, international and domestic academic conference, WTO Public Forum, and policy discourse to both government of Japan and developing countries. Members had a number of occasions to hold seminars to general public as well for dissemination

Specific Research

  • 非関税措置が国際貿易に与える影響

    2017  

     View Summary

    The research utilized the non-tariff measures (NTMs) data compiled by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), which has become available recently to researchers.  The aim of the research is to assess the differences in the NTMs among countries and how this may impact international trade and regional integration efforts.  In terms of comparing various NTMs applied in different countries, we took the automotive industry as an illustrative industry.  The automotive industry is an important industry for the Japanese economy, especially in terms of exports.  The result suggests that compared to other goods, automotive goods exported from Japan tend to face more regulatory burdens around the world and in East Asia.  In addition to examining NTMs at the industry level, we also looked at the potential costs associated with regional integration efforts currently ongoing in East Asian region: ASEAN economic community (AEC), Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), and Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).  The main question we explored is to calculate the degree of difficulties in achieving regulatory harmonization in various regional integration efforts, given the current regulatory regimes in member countries, then identify the base country where the potential cost of adjustment is the lowest.  

  • 食品安全規制が多国間貿易に及ぼす影響分析

    2015  

     View Summary

    In recent years, there is a heightened interest in the food safety issue.  This reflects the number of food scares in developed countries as well as globalization where countries are relying more and more on the imported food materials.  Research in this area is still sparse owing to the lack of systematic data gathering efforts. The purpose of this research is to construct an internationally comparable dataset of US port rejection data from 2007-2010 so that quantitative analysis can be conducted.  Of 37,000 cases of the rejections, more than one third of the data (13,000) was processed to be assigned HS codes.  The result indicates that there is a large variations among different types of agriculture and food commodities in terms of their shares in rejections.  In case of the US, the share of aquatic products (HS03) was the largest (18%), followed by edible preparations (HS21) with 14%, preparations of vegetable products (HS20) with 11%,  and bakery products (HS17) with 10%.  Compared to the Japanese data, the compositions of the products with frequent rejections are different reflecting both the differences in imported goods and the focus of the regulatory agencies.  

  • 日本の食品安全規制が貿易に与える影響の実証分析

    2015  

     View Summary

    In recent years, there is a heightened interest in the food safety issue.  This reflects the number of food scares in developed countries as well as globalization where countries are relying more and more on the imported food materials.  Research in this area is still sparse owing to the lack of systematic data gathering efforts. Existing research relies on specific commodities but does not cover the entire agriculture and food materials.  The purpose of this research is to construct a dataset of Japanese port rejection data from 2000-2005 so that quantitative analysis can be conducted.  The result indicates that there is a large variations among different types of agriculture and food commodities in terms of their shares in rejections.  In case of Japan, the share of vegetables (HS07) was the largest (17%), followed by preparations of meat and aquatic products (HS16) with 15%, edible preparations (HS21) with 12%, and aquatic products (HS03) with 12%.  Compared to these, cereals accounts for only 2% of the rejections.  Thus, among agriculture and food products, the share of rejections vary widely among different commodity groups.  The future research could explore the link between the frequency of rejections to commodity and/or country characteristics.
