Regional Development, Trade & Investment Promotion (RDTIP)

Several studies at both national and regional level have been conducted, and empirical evidence shows that trade, foreign direct investment (FDI), and private-public sector investment are key for economic growth and development.

Africa in general and SADC countries in particular, owing to inadequate resources to finance long-term development, have been looking at trade, FDI and other regional initiatives to boost growth, and possibly reduce poverty in line with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015.

As a company, and as professionals domiciled in Africa, we are concerned about growth and poverty reduction. In this regard, we offer the following services to regional bodies (like SADC and others), governments, trade and promotion agencies, research institutions (think tanks), private corporates and development agencies:

The main tools we use are:

  • Socio-economic modeling and analysis Eviews, Strata, SAS, SPSS (Socio-economic modeling and analysis)
  • Industry wide impact modeling Input-output models (for industry wide impact modeling)
  • Economy wide socio-economic modeling Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) (economy wide socio-economic modeling)
  • Regional and economy wide modelling and impact analysis Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) (regional and economy wide modelling and impact analysis)
  • International Trade Modelling Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) (International Trade Modelling)
