Camille Reverdy presented at the EDEEM Doctoral Summer Workshop in Economics

13th– 14th June 2019, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Campus Economico San Giobbe, Venice, Italy

The European Doctorate in Economics – Erasmus Mundus (EDEEM) is a doctoral program in economics that gathers seven leading European institutions and is coordinated by Universitat Bielefeld, Germany. The EDEEM Doctoral Summer Workshop is intended to favour the exchange of ideas and networking among PhD students and junior researchers. The purpose of the workshop is to foster meaningful dialogue and exchange of ideas. A member of the scientific committee will be assigned as discussant for each paper selected for an oral presentation.

Camille Reverdy presented her research on the export potential in services and the impact of policy measures on explaining these un-seized opportunities. In this paper, Camille calculates the general equilibrium effects of a reduction in barriers to services trade, allowing her to estimate the value trade could reach following this reduction in trade frictions. She finds that an increase in the level of restrictiveness imposed by the importing country by 1% increases the probability to face a trade creation effect by 1.71% and increases the value of trade potential by 1.31% (when focusing only on positive potential values). Accurate feedbacks were provided by the discussant and the audience.
