International Networks

CEI aspires to be an international hub for research into economic institutions. We are dispatching CEI's research results through publishing books, discussion papers, and research papers, building worldwide researching networks, and establishing original database of the enterprises in Japan and Asia.

From the research networking point of view, CEI holds regular research seminars, inviting domestic and international scholars to present their recent research.  During the period from fiscal year 2014 to 2016, we held over 77 seminars with vivid and productive discussions.  In the same time period, we invited in total, 18 scholars from institutions such as University of Queensland, National University of Singapore, University of Adelaide, and Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, as our visiting faculty members. 

We occasionally hold international conferences co-organized with domestic and international research institutions.  To name some of the international conferences to note would be, "Poverty Reduction, Institutions, Markets, and Policies in Developing Countries Conference" in January, 2015, co-hosted by the KAKENHI Grant-in-aid for Scientific Research (S) of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, as well as "Frontier of Transition Economics Conference" in February, 2017, co-hosted by Joint Usage and Research Centre Programs.  These conferences received high interests from many researchers active in front line, both nationally and internationally, making a huge impact of attendance, offering productive discussions at a higher level.

Speaking about databases, CEI has wide trust and reliability in offering Large Shareholder/Board Members of the Listed Companies in Japan Database 2012, which contains detailed information on corporate governance structure in Japan since the 1950s.  The East Asian Listed Companies (EALC) Database 2010 is also available on our website, which targets all listed firms in Japan, China and South Korea (excluding the financial sector).  It includes data necessary to measure total factor productivity at the company level.
