The AEA, in conjunction with 64 associations in related disciplines known as the Allied Social Science Associations (ASSA), holds a three-day meeting each January to present papers on general economics topics. Over 13,000 of the best minds in economics are assembled to network and celebrate new achievements in economic research.
Several CIRANO researchers and Fellows participated in two sessions related to CIRANO's annual theme - Tackling the challenges of supply chains - organized by ITFA and Thierry Warin, HEC Montréal professor and CIRANO Fellow.
Covid-19, Ukraine invasion, or the Suez Canal disruption are just a few examples of events that caused global supply chain disruptions. In this panel, several experts including Julien Martin (UQAM and CIRANO), Lucian Cernat (European Commission and CIRANO), discussed the latest developments in International Trade theory as well as the future potential empirical developments using, for instance, Data Science. They also had a very practical perspective on these global challenges thanks to the presence of International Organizations representatives. Topics such as near-shoring, re-shoring and the future of trade were addressed.
