Evidence-based trade policymaking and analysis: Trade and trade-policy indicators

September 14-28, 2020

Objectives:

Trade flow among the countries determines the economic benefits countries gain from trade. For many Asian developing countries,  agricultural and food trade is an important engine for agricultural growth. The global COVID-19 Pandemic and responses from different countries to contain the outbreak of COVID-19 can have profound implications for trade among countries in Asia. The ability to use trade flow data for analyses is important for decision making related to trade policies. Under the USAID funded Food Security Policy Research, Capacity, and Influence (PRCI) Innovation Laboratory, MSU, IFPRI, Kasetsart University, and UNESCAP with other partners will offer the trade flow analysis training to selected partnering institutions in Asia. 

Collaborators:

Kampanat Vijitsrikamol (KU), Pasakorn Thammachote (KU) and Witada Anukoonwatanaka (UNESCAP)
