Actually there are couple by Nick Bloom's group. The one that comes to mind:

N Bloom, B Eifert, A Mahajan, D McKenzie, J Roberts Does management matter? Evidence from India The Quarterly Journal of Economics 128 (1), 1-51

But I suspect the issues of logistical,
-1-lack of good data collection on industrial activity, and

-2- more fundamentally to the hiring practices, retention and promotion of empirically-trained economists at leading economics and statistics departments in developing nations.

-3- finally the structure of industrial firms' ownership (family owned run) might militate against collaborating on longitudinal data collection with empirical IO researchers in developing nations.
