International Trade and Economic Growth in Latin America

Trade Integration and Growth Network

TIGN the successor of the Regional Integration Network (RIN) has as objective to gather the best researchers working on growth and trade, with a focus on Latin America.

The LACEA-TIGN network aims to build a high quality network of economists working on issues related to the linkages between trade, integration and growth, with a focus on Latin America and the Caribbean. The network is a deepening of the previously existing LACEA network RIN that had an emphasis on trade and integration themes. With this reformulation LACEA aims to expand the topic covered by RIN to trade-related productivity and growth outcomes.

The network develops its activities through the organization of an annual meeting to discuss current and future research priority issues, as well as its relevance for policymakers. For more information please visit TIGN WEBSITE.
