|Outline of Final Research Achievements
This study quantitatively analyzed the effect of trade liberalization in the trans-pacific region on Japanese industries including agriculture using applied microeconomic methods. In the analysis of consumers' evaluation for foreign agricultural products, by implementing taste experiments of foreign rice varieties, we estimated Japanese consumers' willingness-to-pay for them compared to that for a domestic rice variety. Regarding the analysis of imperfect competition in foodsystems, we showed that the Japanese food industry has become oligopolistic since 2011 using establishment-level microdata. We also analyzed the effect of the trans-pacific partnership (TPP) agreement. After carefully considering assumptions and the models in previous simulation analyses about the effects of free trade agreements on Japanese economy, we conducted simulation analyses about the effect of the TPP agreement and showed possible future outcomes in the Japanese economy.
