Economic Policy

In an era of increasing globalisation and trade and investment liberalisation, countries need to determine in what sectors they hold a comparative advantage and, consequently, where their interests lie in the area of trade, industrial and enterprise policy.

To turn static comparative advantage into dynamic competitive advantage in the market place, Ecorys assists governments first in identifying sectors that hold comparative advantage. Next, we provide trade, industrial and enterprise policy advice, support with capacity building in the related fields, including in export and investment promotion, market surveys, sectoral competitiveness guides and advice on Foreign Direct Investment. Our clients include international and regional institutions, governments, local authorities and the private sector.
