A global CGE model at the NUTS 1 level for trade policy evaluation
AbstractThis paper aims at building a global CGE trade model at NUTS 1 level (subnational level) for the EU15 regions. The focus is on the production side. The model is used to assess production reallocation across sectors in each NUTS 1 regions after an agricultural tariff liberalization. Nevertheless, it can also be used to simulate other trade policy reform according to the special objective of the researcher. The model is parsimonious in terms of data at the NUTS 1 level. The unskilled and skilled labour are the source of the heterogeneity across the NUT 1 regions. A stylised model is built in order to interpret the results. A sensitivity analysis on trade policy results according to two different degrees of skilled/unskilled labour mobility (perfect immobility and high mobility within the EU15) is conducted. Moreover, an integrated unskilled/skilled labour market within EU27 is tested.
