The computable general equilibrium (CGE) model is one of the most widely used economic impact assessment tools for policy analysis. This workshop, composed of two two-hour sessions, first introduces theoretic foundations of the CGE model and then demonstrates actual model development based on GAMS, a high-level programming language. During the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to develop a two-sector CGE model with a case example and step-by-step tutorials offered by the instructor.
|Session I||Session II|
