The SYRENA (SYnthesis of REgional and
NAtional Models) Model Complex
GENERAL PRINCIPLESStudies of multiregional input-output models and models of two-level economic
systems--distinguishing between the "national economy" and the "regions"--have
been conducted in the Institute of Economics and Industrial Engineering (IEIE) for
more than fifteen years. During the first stage of this work, multiregional models were
developed separately from regional models and were considered only as an instrument
for the computation of centrally planned projections and analyses. As the studies
devoted to regional models have advanced, however, the situation for a growing
number of regions has changed: multiregional models have become an important
instrument for the synthesis and coordinated solution of individual regional models.The main construction principle of the SYRENA (SYnthesis of REgional and
NAtional economic models) model complex is as follows. A detailed description of the
"central" elements (which are of special interest) is completed by an aggregated
presentation of the remaining elements of the national economy (Figure 11.1).The SYRENA model complex consists of national-level models (with and
without a regional specification) and models of the first-level regions (macrozones,
union republics, and economic regions).There are three types of multiregional model in the SYRENA complex:
|1. ||Different versions of the balanced multiregional input-output model ( Nauka, 1983)|
|2. ||Optimizing multiregional input-output models (OMIOM) with a scalar or vector
objective function (in particular cases, these models contain relationships specifying production, consumption, and incomes for the population concerned)
( Granberg, 1973).|
|3. ||Models of optimal economic interaction of regions with local objective functions
( Rubinshtein, 1983).|
