Research question and motivation
My topic will aim to search for additional non-tariff barriers that can be overlooked when constructing ordinary bilateral trade deals. Furthermore I will try to estimate the after-deal situation and compare it with current situation as well as potential ideal situation with no barriers.
FTA (Free Trade Area) negotiations between European Union and Japan about FTA are already finished. However, it is still waiting to be ratified and implementation itself can continue for couple more months or years so this thesis could either forecast the situation (if FTA is still not operational by the time of my Bachelor´s thesis defense) or explain the situation (if it is already in place fully-functioning).

As mentioned earlier results of my work should illustrate the ideal situation of trade between Czech and Japan as well as identify non-tariff barriers that might be underestimated or simply hidden for people who do not have time and expertise to study the situation closely.

I use gravity models for international trade. That includes constructing a regression to estimate parameters of certain barriers in some cases using dummy variables. Data neccessary for my regression will be collected from Comtrade. However, data only from Czech-Japan (or EU-Japan) trade will not be sufficient to construct a good model (avoid violation of basic regression assumptions). I will get data for many different countries to provide high number of various observations throughout 15-20 years for each country.

My work will start with improving my knowledge on the exact methodology of gravity models as well as current situation of the negotiations between EU and Japan. To construct my model I will get data from comtrade website not only for bilateral trade of Czech and Japan but also various other countries to have a proper estimates. Then I will use this data in Rstudio and decide which barriers are important in case of Czech-Japan trade and comment on them.
