Differences in Technology Transfers to China Among European and Japanese Elevator Companies


  • Mizuno, Junko


This report analyzes technology transfers and education for local engineers within overseas subsidiaries of Japanese and European companies that have advanced into China, and examines differences among them. Based on the assumption that if the quality of trained local engineers is different, the international division of labor is also different, I aim to clarify how they are different.
