Data flow


Building on three key resources – constantly evolving evidence-based research, expert knowledge and experience, and our network of experts - we provide customised, rigorous and specialised research on trade and investment policy issues. 

We offer customised products and services, from economy wide impact assessments to capacity building

Our work allows governments to resolve complex decisions about trade policy trade-offs and companies to understand implications for their business, giving them competitive advantage. We also provide clear analysis of trade agreements, trade negotiations, and other trade policies, which allows companies to make use of new market openings and navigate regulatory regimes.

By applying tailored proprietary toolkits, organisations can better measure complex problems, such as the impact of trade policy, the implementation of trade agreements, and stakeholder engagement in trade policy. Finally, we also engage in a range of training, capacity-building and stakeholder consultation activities.
