"GTAP 7 Data Base Documentation - Chapter 7 I-O Table: Guatemala"
by Ludena, Carlos, José Elías Durán Lima and Andres Schuschny


Abstract
This document describes the steps behind the creation of the first Input-Output (I-O) table of Guatemala for the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP). The Guatemala I-O table for GTAP is based on the 2001 Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) built by Alarcon (2006) under the cooperation of Guatemala’s Secretaría General de Planificación (SEGEPLAN) and the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) in The Hague.

The inclusion of Guatemala into GTAP has had the support of the International Trade and Integration Division of ECLAC. The ECLAC International Trade and Integration Division, United Nations, altogether with other ECLAC Division, has been embarked in the effort to develop and support the application of quantitative tools that allow the analysis of trade policy issues in Latin America and the Caribbean, specially those changes related to Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), Regional Integration Agreements (RIA) and the multilateral negotiations in World Trade Organization (WTO). A useful tool for such analysis is the application of Computable General Equilibrium Models (CGEM).
