The world is witnessing a shift in power in the global economy from west to east. The characteristics of Japanese foreign direct investment are acknowledged to differ from the US type, and this difference is likely to become increasingly important. This book tracks trends in Japanese FDI to other Asian countries, and offers suggestions for future policy design, analyses methodological aspects, and provides an overview of various facets of Japanese FDI. This book focuses on FDI flows to Asia's 'four dragons' – Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan – to the second wave of Asian NIEs – Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia – and to the rising powers of China and India, covering a 4-decade time span up to the current WTO period.
Combining a range of methodological approaches – trend analysis, econometric modelling, surveys and interviews – this book investigates the location factors and the determinants of Japanese FDI in Asia. This pioneering work also approaches, quantifies and analyses the critical parameters governing investment decisions as perceived by the Japanese investors. Econometrically, it identifies a set of economic determinants following a general to simple approach, with the help of a balanced panel. With its comprehensive and innovative approach to the analysis of FDI flows, this book is an indispensable companion for scholars, researchers and policymakers involved in the area of FDI.
