Welcome to trade-invest.org, a platform designed to enhance the understanding
of international trade and investment issues, to facilitate exchanges of
views between researchers and practitioners, and to support economic policy
debates and private sector decisions.
This website has been conceived and is managed by three consulting
/ research firms, two of them based in France (TAC and DMI) and
one based in India (AceGlobal). All are significantly involved in
international development processes, issues and policies:
- TAC is a small applied
economic and financial research group, engaged in both academic
research, public policy analysis and studies for private decision-making,
all dealing with international economic developments, and many
(but not all) implying a quantitative / modelling exercise.
- DMI is a consulting
/ research-engineering company based in Lyon (France) and heavily
involved in multilateral institutions’ projects and programmes
dealing with trade and foreign investment issues, including, but
not limited to, WTO compliance, policy adjustment, regional trade
- AceGlobal is a
leading independent consulting firm in India (based in New Delhi),
working intensively on foreign trade, foreign investment, infrastructure
and development issues, in India but also in many other developing
countries, from the Far East to Eastern and Southern Africa. AceGlobal
has the ability to pursue both policy / public sector research
and studies, and strategic assessment (including detailed operational
issues) for international companies willing to invest in emerging
These three companies work very often together – occasionally
with others – and have joined forces in the area of international
trade and investment analysis. In particular, they have been associated
with many projects funded by the European Commission on trade and
FDI issues involving a ‘dialogue’ between policy makers
and the private sector, be it in Europe or in developing countries.
In many instances, they have used the Internet as a practical and cost-effective
way of enhancing such a dialogue, and this was the initial seed for creating
a generic web platform for such exchanges.
As of today, two specific geographic areas have been covered by such
studies and do warrant a dialogue platform, India and the ASEAN.
