International Partners

Overview

Over the last 30 years, Inforum has directed much of its effort to developing a linked system of international macro/interindustry models, all constructed with a consistent methodology. The small staff of Inforum in College Park could not have achieved this without the help of its growing family of international partners.

The linked system of models currently is composed of models for the following 13 countries: Canada, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Spain, Austria, China, and the U.S. The models are linked through the Bilateral Trade Model (BTM), so that economic behavior in one country consistently affects the economies of other countries at the industry level. For example, the production of autos in Japan ultimately affects the demand for iron ore in Canada, through the requirements of Japanese steel supplies to the Japanese auto industry. For a more detailed description of the models, see the International System page.

Inforum currently does not have a partner organization for every model, nor has every partner country supplied a model to the international system. However, Inforum continues to work with the partner organizations to help them build models of their countries, or to update their models using the Inforum Interdyme modeling software.


Conferences

Each year since 1993, Inforum has held an annual world conference. The aim of these conferences is to advance the work of empirical input-output modeling, analysis, and data development techniques through the presentation and publication of papers representing the work of Inforum activities worldwide. Although the agenda overlaps somewhat with that of the International Input-Output Conference, it more specifically is dedicated to empirical work, especially in the areas of model building and data development.
