Building APEC Economies’ Capacities of Employing Input-Output Tables for Advanced Economic Modeling


The self-funded project is expected to identify the need and interest among APEC economies in a closer collaboration on advanced economic policy modeling.

The purpose of the conference is to explore whether international input-output tables and related models may be a practical tool for impact analysis of various APEC policy initiatives.

The first day of the conference will include presentations and Q & A sessions to raise APEC members' awareness about the academic achievements in the area of economic policy modeling and the applicability of results. The second day will provide an avenue for discussion of what can be APEC's role in building capacities in the area of producing and employing IOT in the foreseeable future.

Participants All APEC member economies are invited to participate. The following representatives from the member economies are particularly encouraged to attend:
• Government officials involved in APEC fora (committees, working groups) activities;
• APEC Secretariat and Policy Support Unit staff;
• Member economies' officials from ministries of economy, trade, industry, energy, agriculture, labour and the environment, productivity commissions and related authorities involved in setting economic policy and carrying out impact assessment;
• Officials from statistical agencies of APEC member economies;
• Academics interested in pursuing IOT related research in the interest of policy making and modeling;
• Representatives of other regional stakeholders and observers such as PECC, ASEAN.

The Conference will be conducted in English.

The dress code for the Conference is Smart Casual.

Participants and speakers may make their hotel reservation directly with the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Singapore which is the venue of the Conference or at www.expedia.com.

Singapore is made up of not just one island but a main island with 63 surrounding islets. The main island has a total land area of 682 square km. However, its compact size belies its economic growth. In just 150 years, Singapore has grown into a thriving centre of commerce and industry. Its former role as an entrepot has diminished, as the nation has increased its manufacturing base.
Singapore is the busiest port in the world with over 600 shipping lines sending super tankers, container ships and passenger liners to share the busy waters with coastal fishing vessels and wooden lighters.
One of the world's major oil refining and distribution centres, Singapore is a major supplier of electronic components and a leader in shipbuilding and repairing. It has also become one of the most important financial centres of Asia, with more than 130 foreign and local banks. Business dealings are facilitated by Singapore's superb global communications network.
Singapore's strategic location, excellent facilities, fascinating cultural contrasts and tourist attractions contribute to its success as a leading destination for both business and pleasure.


Singapore is warm and humid all year round, with only slight variations between the average maximum of 31 degree Celsius and minimum of 23 degrees Celsius. Rain falls throughout the year, with more consistent rain coming during the monsoon season from November to January. Please refer to www.nea.gov.sg for the latest updates on Singapore's weather.

Most banks handle travellers' cheques and foreign currency exchange. However, some banks do not have foreign exchange dealings on Saturdays. Passports are required when cashing in travellers' cheques. A nominal commission may be charged.
Apart from banks and hotels, money can be changed wherever the sign "Licensed Money Changer" is displayed. Most shopping complexes have a licensed money changer. Visitors are discouraged from changing money with unlicensed money changers.
