Trade and Structural Adjustments
Aid for Trade
Private Sector Development
Kiichiro (Ki) Fukasaku has been working extensively in the following areas: intra-industry and intra-firm trade, trade and development, direct foreign investment, regional integration and co-operation and the "development dimension" of the WTO system. More recently, he has dedicated much of his research time to OECD programmes on development issues, including policy coherence for development, trade and structural adjustment, trade capacity building, aid for trade and private sector development, with focus on Africa and Asia.
Prior to joining the OECD, Ki Fukasaku was a staff economist of the Economic Research and Analysis Unit of the GATT Secretariat (now the WTO) in Geneva (1983-90). He holds B.A. (Economics) and M.A. (International Economics) from Keio University, Japan, and M.A. (Development Economics) and D.Phil. (Economics) from University of Sussex, United Kingdom. He occasionally gives lectures and seminars at various institutions and universities, including Sciences Po (Paris), the Johns Hopkins University (Bologna) and Keio University (Tokyo).
