Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

Under the ARTNeT Initiative on "Gravity Modelling of Behind-the-Border Factors Affecting Trade" launched in 2008, the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Asia-Pacific Research and Training Network on Trade (ARTNeT) in collaboration with the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GlZ) GmbH, and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), have jointly organized an ARTNeT-GIZ Capacity Building Workshop on Gravity Modelling from 7 to 9 April 2015 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The 3-days event is dedicated to hands-on training on gravity modelling, including dataset preparation, estimation, interpretation and policy applications. Basic gravity modelling techniques and simulations based on estimated gravity and related equations were covered during the workshop.
