Conference: Assessment of the Short-, Medium- and Long-Term Impacts of the Quebec Infrastructure Program (PQI) on the Quebec Economy

CIRANO

Wednesday 26 Jun 2019
From 9AM to 4PM

The CIRANO pole on Quebec economy modelization (peMEQ-CIRANO) wished to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field to promote exchanges between government modelers, with a view to enabling researchers to better understand the needs of the government and users of government models to identify models (existing or to be developed) that would meet their needs.

In this context, the results of the project "Evaluation of the short-, medium- and long-term impacts of the Quebec Infrastructure Program (PQI) on the Quebec economy" was presented at this two-part conference:  

  • Part I: Impacts of Education Infrastructure Spending on Education Levels, Human Capital Used by Industries, Relative Wages and Labour Supply
     
  • Part II: Impacts of Road Infrastructure Spending by Public Administrations on Industrial Productivity

The work was carried out by Yves Richelle, economist and general manager at DAMÉCO, and Henri Thibaudin, senior economist at DAMÉCO, using the Hercules model, a dynamic model of the Quebec economy.

This project is an example of a study of the impacts of economic policies in relation to the Pole's mission, whose objectives are the transfer of knowledge and the creation of interest in modelling the Québec economy.
