Factors affecting Japanese investment in the Australian beef industry






Review of Marketing and Agricultural Economics 60(3): 369-380

Factors affecting Japanese investment in the Australian beef industry

This paper begins with details on the current level of Japanese investment in the Australian beef industry from the pasture-fed and lot-fed sector to abatoirs and post-abatoir meat processing. The reasons for direct investment by Japanese firms in the Australian beef industry are investigated, as is the nature and extent of integration by these firms in the Japanese beef production and marketing chain. The results are shown to be consistent with foreign direct investment theory.
