Congratulations to the winners of the 32nd ANZESG Young Econometrician Award

Feb 29, 2024

On 9 February 2024, Motu Research hosted the 32nd Australia New Zealand Econometric Study Group meeting (ANZESG) in Wellington.


This annual event provides a supportive environment for econometricians to present and discuss their work, and attendees come from New Zealand, Australia, and further abroad.


At each event, an emphasis is placed on encouraging and supporting the achievements of emerging researchers who are either PhD students, or recent graduates. An award is given to recipients based on their research quality and presentation, and their informed discussion of the research of others.


Well done to our two winners of the 32nd ANZESG Young Econometrician Award, listed below with their papers:


Naveed Javed, from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand

Paper: Dornbusch’s Overshooting and the Systematic Component of Monetary Policy in SOR-SVARS


Fangzhou Yu, from the University of New South Wales

Paper: Tests for Heterogeneous Treatment Effect



This event was hosted with generous support from both The Treasury and Reserve Bank of New Zealand.
