Interregional Trade, Industrial Location and Import Infrastructure

Toru Kikuchi and Kazumichi Iwasa

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to illustrate, with a simple two-region, two-good, two-factor model, how an improvement in one region’s import infrastructure can affect firms’ location decisions and the nature of the trading equilibrium. It is shown that, through improvements in import infrastructure, one region might divert high-tech industries to another region. This effect reduces the incentive to improve import infrastructure.
