By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at China Weekly News -- Fresh data on Economics and Finance are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Tokyo, Japan, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "This paper studies the impact of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 on Japanese exports, focusing on international production networks in machinery sectors. For our survival analysis, we estimate a Cox proportional hazards model."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "Consequently, we find that Japanese exports to Asian countries, parts and components trade in particular, were less likely to stop during the crisis. Even if they stopped, such trade is more likely to be revived."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Therefore, regardless of the worldwide economic crisis, Japan maintained trade relationships in parts and components in the machinery sectors."
