|Alan A. Powell Award|
Each year at the GTAP Advisory Board meeting we present an award to one of the members of the Board in recognition of outstanding service. This award is in honor of one of the Founding Members of the Advisory Board, and the intellectual grandfather of GTAP - Alan A. Powell.
The 2013 recipient of the Alan A. Powell Award is Dr. Stephen Karingi. Dr. Karingi is the Director of the Regional Integration, Infrastructure and Trade Division at the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), which has been a member of the GTAP Consortium since 2005.
Stephen's leadership at the UNECA through hosting GTAP events, mobilizing I-O tables, leading policy analyses and ensuring that GTAP realizes its maximum possible impact in Africa is greatly valued, and as such, it is the Center for Global Trade Analysis' great pleasure to recognize him as the 2013 Alan A. Powell Award recipient.
Congratulations, Stephen, and thank you for your many contributions to GTAP!
