Provides analysis for a practical action planto implement pro-poor policies through macroeconomic initiatives. The study covers sequencing and implementation issues and provides estimates of both macro and significant microeconomic impacts. The major components of the study are (a) a general dynamic macroeconomic model of the impact of tariff reform that forecasts the likely impact on overall economic activity, fiscal revenues, inflation, unemployment, balance of payment and the exchange rate; (b) a partial-equilibrium analysis at the product-specific level; (c) sector and industry specific analyses; and (d) economy-wide analysis using a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model.
