> Practical Guide to Trade Policy Analysis

This newly developed course is offered as part of the WTO technical assistance and capacity building courses.  It is implemented within the WTO’s Progressive Learning Strategy and represents “level 3” — the highest level of “specialist” training.

The course is based on the joint publication UNCTAD/WTO Practical Guide to Trade Policy Analysis. It has been designed by the WTO Economic Research and Statistics Division and delivered jointly with the WTO Institute for Training and Technical Cooperation.

The ability to conduct high quality analyses of trade data is essential for decision making.  Multilateral, regional and bilateral trade negotiations, as well as the formulation and implementation of appropriate policies at a national level, require an extensive analysis of economic data and an assessment of the impact of trade policy decisions.

The purpose of this advanced level, specialized course is for the participants to learn how to select the appropriate approach to answer their trade policy research question, how to collect the data and implement the analysis.  During the course, participants will become familiar with sources of data (focussing on trade in goods) and with methodologies for trade and trade policy analysis, including calculation of trade flows and trade policy indicators, the gravity model for trade and the partial equilibrium model.  The course will also be a platform for discussion on ways to enhance the use of research in policy making.
