Overview of the project

Overview of the project

  • Project’s goal

    • Comprehensive assessment of policies related to sustainable development agenda (as it is understood by Russian and international policy makers)


Overview of the project1

Overview of the project

  • Assessment

  • Different policies (3 dimensions) – unified framework

    • Core model: CGE

      • A country model – Russia

      • Regions – 7 federal districts

        • Producers

        • Consumers

        • Regional Gov

      • trade links between regions in the model (federal districts)

      • regional trade links with the rest of the world

      • federal government

      • saving-investment block

      • macro closure(s)

      • time

Overview of the project


Existing russian cge models

Existing Russian CGE models

  • Russian CGE models

    • RUSEC – academician V. L. Makarov’s model

    • BEA models (early version of Rutherfods’ model: Andrey Zemnitsky)

    • CEFIR models:

      • Whalley-type simple trade model

      • Ecomod-type tax model

      • Simple tax model + microsimulation

      • Regional model: interbudgetary issues

    • GTAP model


Existing russian cge models1

Existing Russian CGE models

  • Tom Rutherford’s models: WTO assessment

    • Main features of the core model:

      • increasing returns to scale (Dixit-Stiglitz love for variety)

      • multinationals and FDI in business services

    • Available models – The Worldbank site(http://go.worldbank.org/NWK0H6OU70 )

      • Country model with a representative agent – the core model

      • Country model with 48,000 households – poverty evaluation

      • Regional model (10 regions in Russia) – regional consequences


Overview of the sust rus project

Data

  • Major issues to have in mind

    • IO tables

      • Country IO

      • Regional IOs

  • Interregional trade


Overview of the sust rus project

Data

  • Country IO

    • Last published Russian IO

      • 2003 OKONH (old Russian industrial classification)

      • 23 industries

    • Since 2004 – OKVED (NACE-based classification)

      • Any communications with policy makers – in OKVED terms

    • Transform 2003 IO to OKVED (NACE, ISIC – based GTAP classification)

      • Disaggregate IO 2003 on the basis of a detailed 1995 IO

      • Aggregate to GTAP sectors (48 sectors)


Overview of the sust rus project

Data

  • Regional IOs

    • Tom Rutherford – set of Russian regional IOs for 2001 (23 industries - OKONH format) (http://go.worldbank.org/IDHFFMGYS0)

  • To build a regional IO: Start from a country IO

    • Assumption – technologies are the same - IO coefficients from a country table

    • Regional output

    • Services production

    • Household consumption

    • Investment

    • Government consumption on a regional level

    • Interregional trade

    • Region’s International trade


Overview of the sust rus project

Data

  • Interregional trade

    • We have so far: 2001 data

    • 256 commodities

    • Interregional trade in services?


Overview of the sust rus project

Data

  • Conclusion

    • Lots of work

    • Important decisions – next meeting on data collection
