Research

As a director of Trade, Investment band Innovation Division of the United Nations ESCAP, I guided and supervised the analytical work on areas covered by the Division’s program in areas of trade, investment and technology, and innovation. For example, I have led research work on trade policy and trade-related issues incorporated in, inter alia, the Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Report from 2009 to 2021. All research was geared towards creating applicable and adequate evidence for improved trade, investment, and innovation policymaking in the context of sustainable development. This spans from mapping and monitoring of preferential trading arrangements in the Asia-Pacific region (including further development of an analytically-friendly database known as the Asia-Pacific Trade and Investment Agreements Database, APTIAD); to providing a measurement of the impact of alternative policy options or policy scenarios, and developing new analytical tools.

Personally, I have been paying special attention to the role of the services trade and in particular digitally enabled services in the development; organization of regional and GVCs; evolution of regionalism under the rules of the multilateral trading system; sustainable trade and investment, regulatory issues for the digital economy; frontier technologies and inclusive future of work, and enabling a bigger role of women in influencing evidence-based policymaking in trade, investment, and innovation.
