Structural Transformation in Haiti

Date
Sep 2018
Assessment of the impact of various scenarios related to accelerating growth and structural change in Haiti. The analysis is based on simulations with a relatively standard recursive dynamic computable general equilibrium (CGE) model designed for development policy analysis. For the purpose of this paper, the model was adapted to the Haitian context and calibrated to a database for 2013, the most recent year with sufficiently detailed information. The simulations cover the period 2013-2030 and consider alternative policies and shocks starting from 2019.
