The Global Economic Institute (GEI) is a non-profit research and development organization fostering public-private dialogue on global issues. Our research is interdisciplinary and collaborative; GEI is focused on internationalization and the triple helix of industry-academia-government interactions.

The Institute’s work is organized around four thematic areas: Trade, Foreign Direct Investment, Innovation and Sustainable Development. 

We combine technical expertise, institutional experience, global perspectives and local realities to help advance the Sustainable Development Goals. 

In particular, leveraging our vast network of experts and practitioners, we specialize in harnessing best practices from around the world to help emerging markets and developing economies.

Our Secretariat, located in Ottawa, Canada, serves as the global point of contact for partners and stakeholders.
