FY 2011/2012 Research Topic: 4-18
Theory of International Input-Output Analysis


The Institute of Developing Economies, JETRO (IDE-JETRO) has been engaged in Asian international input-output (I/O) projects for over three decades in collaboration with government agencies and research institutions in Asia. These projects have produced many international I/O tables, which have been used to conduct various kinds of economic analyses.
In recent years, the demand for these international I/O tables is increasing as an effective tool for analyzing recent economic phenomena occurring in the world, such as international production networks and economic integration.
In response to such increasing needs for international I/O tables, the objective of this study is to compile a book that provides a comprehensive understanding of international input-output analysis, by utilizing the know how on compilation and analyses that has been accumulated in these projects. The study is expected to serve as a useful reference both to compilers and analysts of international I/O tables.
