Training on CGE modelling
The upcoming training on 2-6 July 2018 is the second part of the series of workshops, that offers an introduction to economy-wide modelling for policy analysis. The workshop is held in Maputo and it is part of the Inclusive Growth in Mozambique Project.
The workshop targets primarily managers and policy analysts, although it is also useful for those wishing to become modellers. It introduces participants to the key components of standard Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models, emphasizing how to use economy-wide models and the economic interpretation of their outputs, rather than the techniques of building them.
CGE models are economic models, that use statistical data to estimate how changes in policies, technology and other external factors might affect the economy.
