Peter Bailey from the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade says that ImpactECON’s work is cutting edge and their independence adds considerable credibility.
Susan Stone (OECD) describes ImpactECON as a “first-rate, professional organisation that delivers high-quality analysis in a timely, accessible manner. The work done for the OECD met our requirements and exceeded expectations, providing pivotal input to support a broader modelling effort. I will be recommending ImpactECON to others in need of similar expertise.”
