Workshop on Analyzing International Trade Data Using TradeSift Software

November 2, 2015 - November 6, 2015

- Ottawa

During the week of November 2–6, 2015, the interns undertook training on how to use TradeSift software to analyze trade data. In addition to the interns, CBoC had invited participants from Global Affairs Canada, TFO Canada, and CBoC staff to join the training. Dr. Michael Gasiorek from the Sussex Innovation Centre, University of Sussex, Brighton, England, conducted the training. Dr. Gasiorek focused the training on how the software can take freely available international trade data (such as those from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development or the World Integrated Trade Solution) to generate diagnostic trade indicators, analyze trade policy before and after implementation, and generate negotiating priorities and strategies based on actual trade and economic performance. He also demonstrated how to use the software to quickly and accurately generate graphs, tables, and reports.
