Patrick Jomini is Assistant Commissioner at the Australian Productivity Commission. He leads a group of about 15 researchers and quantitatively inclined economists who support the Commission’s inquiries and research programs.

Patrick has worked on a range of economic policy issues, including evaluating the effects of National Competition Policy and tariff reductions, and evaluating the effects of multilateral liberalisation in goods and services trade. More recently, Patrick was involved in estimating the possible effects of a new wave of reforms, the National Reform Agenda. In most of these projects, Patrick played a key role in developing the analytical framework, models and data that enabled the analysis required.

Patrick had a heavy hand in the development of the Salter model of world trade on which the early version of GTAP was based and in the development of FTAP to analyse the liberalisation of trade in services. Patrick led the development of the Integrated Tariff Analysis System to facilitate access to tariff and trade data for trade analysts, modellers and negotiators.

At different points in his career, Patrick worked on the economics of alternative sources of fertilizers in the Sahel and other development related projects (at Purdue University); was the Resident Advisor for the USAID’s Policy Analysis and Monitoring project in Niamey, Niger; and worked on greenhouse modelling issues while at the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics.

Patrick was educated at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and holds a PhD in Agricultural Economics from Purdue University.

From August 2008 to January 2010, Patrick will be in Paris, working with Professor Patrick Messerlin on a variety of collaborative projects between the Groupe d'Economie Mondiale and the Productivity Commission.
