The Crawford School of Public Policy, ANU, and the VU Centre of Policy Studies are hosting the National Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) Modelling Workshop at the Weston Theatre in the Crawford School of Public Policy.

The National CGE Workshop is an annual event that provides a forum for CGE modellers to exhibit and discuss their work. Register to be part of the audience and/or give a presentation. Students are encouraged to participate.

The program will include a longer presentation from the key note speaker, and short presentations from participants of about 15—20 minutes, followed by questions

The workshop will interest those new to CGE modelling, expert modellers and policy advisors who rely on modelling to analyse events with economic impacts.
