"Chapter 7.G: Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Puerto Rico"
by Ludena, Carlos and Mark Horridge

In the interest of including additional countries from the Caribbean into the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) Data Base to support economic analysis on these countries, the Inter-American Development Bank commissioned the inclusion of Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic into version 8.2 (and 9) of the GTAP Data Base. The document describes the process of transforming the original input-out and supply use tables of these four Caribbean countries into the GTAP format.

Hi Ludena, Carlos and Mark,
I am an Assistant Professor, Economics at Shivaji College University of Delhi. We have been engaged to conduct Economic Impact Assessment (EIA) of Information Technology Sector in Trinidad and Tobago. The study also involves International Benchmark and Gap Analysis. We are in process of developing EIA models for Trinidad and Tobago and other countries in the Caribbean. Our EIA model extensively uses the input -output modelling framework to arrive at Direct, Indirect and Induced Impacts generated within the economy. For our data requirements, we require Input-Output Tables for Caribbean countries.

While looking for I-O Tables these countries, I cam across GTAP ( Global Trade Analysis Project) and I was intrigued by the extensive data and research services offered on the portal.
Can I request you to share the latest available version of the I-O tables for Trinidad and Tobago and other Caribbean countries
It would facilitate development of a robust economic impact assessment model. I would be grateful if you could share the I-O tables.

Best Regards
