    Supporting Equitable Economic Development in ASEAN: Impact of Regional Integration (AEC) on Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam (CLMV countries).

    With support from Agence Fraincaise de Developpement (AFD), ARTNeT has lauched a new project entitled "Supporting Equitable Economic Development in ASEAN: Impact of Regional Integration (AEC) on Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Viet Nam (CLMV countries)." Reflecting the challenges posed by the AEC, the objective of the project is to strengthen the technical and analytical skills of researchers and officials from CLMV countries to manage and assess the impact of: (a) non-tariff measures, and (b) protection of intellectual property rights (IPR) (e.g., through geographical indications for food products exports).

    WTO/ESCAP- 13th ARTNeT Capacity Building Workshop on "Empirical trade analysis: Trade and welfare effects of trade facilitation and Aid for trade"

    This workshop aims to familiarize participants with state-of-the art structural gravity estimation techniques using STATA. The focus will be on calculation of ad valorem equivalents of trade policy measures, with applications to trade facilitation and aid for trade. The workshop will also introduce participants to counterfactual analysis of the welfare effects of trade policy measures based on gravity results. Whenever possible the workshop will incorporate hands-on sessions giving participants sufficient opportunities to explore existing public databases and tools.
