Elena I. Ianchovichina

Dr. Elena Ianchovichina is a Senior Economist in the World Bank's Economic Policy and Debt Department, Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Network. She joined the World Bank Group in 2000 through the Young Professional program and has since worked in the World Bank's Research Department, and East Asia and Pacific Region. Her current work focuses on country-level analysis of economic growth, growth in Emerging Asia, fiscal and trade reform. Elena has published journal articles and book chapters on a number of special topics including China's WTO accession, export processing arrangements, market access for least developed countries, trade and poverty, and sub-national fiscal reform.

Her work on the interplay between duty-drawbacks (the rebate of tariffs collected on inputs used in exported goods) and tariff reforms in China was particularly influential during that country's recent WTO accession. She showed that these tariff rebates had played a very important role in China's export boom of the 1990's, and, by incorporating them in her analyses of China's WTO accession, she was able to produce much more accurate estimates of the likely impacts of these policy reforms. Indeed, this work has been highlighted as one of the few studies that “got it right” with respect to the final impact of China's joining the WTO.

Prior to joining the World Bank, Elena was an assistant professor in international trade at Kansas State University (KSU). While at KSU, she led a cooperative research project with the US Department of Agriculture on the impact of technological progress in agriculture and land use on the global economy.
