After his studies Business Engineering (Ghent University), Guy Trachez started working at the Federal Planning Bureau in 2019. As a data analyst within the Sectoral and environmental accounts and analyses team, he carries out quantitative analyses in the field of globalisation and value creation based on supply and use tables (SUT) and input-output tables (IOT).
He has contributed to the Eurostat HeterIO-project examining how conventional SUT can be broken down by alternative forms of heterogeneity, such as size, ownership, exporter status and other firm characteristics. These extended tables allow the role and impact of different types of firms within global value chains (GVCs) to be investigated.
As from January 2021, Guy participates in the drawing up and analysis of various environmental economic accounts, including the Environmental Taxes by Economic Activity (ETEA), the Air Emissions Accounts (AEA), and the Physical Energy Flow Accounts (PEFA).
