About Anna

Anna’s research is primarily in the area of international trade policy modelling and analysis. She teaches papers in economics and global competitiveness, international trade modelling, and economic policy.

In addition to her Waikato Management School work, economist Anna Strutt works with the University of Adelaide and consults for a range of national and international organisations.

She has worked with organisations such as the Asian Development Bank, the EU-Vietnam Multilateral Trade Assistance Project, the Mekong Institute, New Zealand Institute of Economic Research, the UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation and the World Bank. This vast and varied experience means she brings a wealth of international knowledge to executive education participants.

Anna contributes to many national and international research projects. For example, she has undertaken work for the Tokyo-based Asian Development Bank Institute to assess socioeconomic impacts of infrastructure development and for the Bangkok-based UNESCAP, analysing impacts of the global financial crisis on international trade flows. In recent work for the Asian Development Bank, she focused on Asia’s changing role in world trade over the next few decades.
