As part of its mission to provide technical assistance to member States, ESCWA organized from 26 to 30 September a capacity building workshop on economic modelling, with the aim to build an economic framework for Morocco.  
Officials from the High Commission for Planning and various departments concerned were trained to master the tool used in economic simulations. They learned how to build and implement an equilibrium model to measure the effects of economic policies, and to come up with a proper economic model for the country.
The CGE model is a useful tool for policy analysts to monitor the economy, to evaluate policy impacts, and to forecast future economic behaviours.
