Malabo, Equatorial Guinea
DS Institute assists the African Development Bank (ADB) to develop a Computable General Equilibrium model to help post Covid-19 economic recovery in Equatorial Guinea and in the CEMAC Zone.
The African Development Bank (AfDB) provides supports for the post-Covid-19 economic recovery process in Equatorial Guinea and all the countries of the CEMAC Zone. To carry out this initiative, the Bank has engaged DS Institute to provide its technical services in developing a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model to analyze the impacts of macroeconomic shocks on the economy in Equatorial Guinea and CEMAC zone. The main objective of this study is to develop tools for analyzing the impact of macroeconomic shocks, in particular Covid-19 and/or alternative policies and reforms to be implemented, for Equatorial Guinea and CEMAC. This study will provide the the Bank with elements of dialogue allowing it to support (i) the Government of Equatorial Guinea on the one hand, in its desire to revive the country’s economy during the post-COVID-19 period by integrating the current opportunities and challenges for a better reconstruction or “building back better”; and on the other hand, the regional authorities of the CEMAC in their ambition to better integrate the countries of the region, among themselves, but also with the rest of the continent within the framework of the AfCFTA.
