The Australia-New Zealand Economic Analysis (ANZEA) Model

ANZEA Model

The Australia-New Zealand Economic Analysis (ANZEA) model was developed to illustrate some of the effects of various aspects of integration on the Australian and New Zealand economies as part of the report on Strengthening Economic Relations between Australia and New Zealand.

It is a global general equilibrium model that is based on the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) model. The model is an example of 'simplified general equilibrium modelling', where the only equations included in the model are the equations required to solve the general equilibrium problem.

A description of the ANZEA model and the results that it produces are presented in 'Supplementary Paper E: Economy-wide modelling of economic integration' of the report on Strengthening Economic Relations between Australia and New Zealand.

Comments in the program are designed to provide guidance about how the model works. For this reason, users need a working knowledge about GEMPACK. Two referees' reports relating to the use of the model for the aforementioned project are available on this web page.
