SLFUE Workshop on “Introduction to CGE Modelling for Policy Analysis – The GTAP Model”

From 16.00 to 16.30

On 9th April 2021

At Boardroom, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Peradeniya

This workshop aims to promote the exchange of ideas among university economists conducting quantitative analysis of policies and economic issues under a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) framework, specifically using the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) model. During this short workshop, we will introduce the CGE approach, the GTAP model, its uses of economy-wide analysis of trade policy, and the way the university economists can incorporate these modelling approaches to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching of quantitative policy analysis.
