The Global Practice for Macro Trade & Investment (MTI) comprises about 450 staff working across more than 120 countries.  Almost half of MTI professional staff are decentralized to the field working closely with the Country Management Units (CMUs) and in proximity to the clients.  The Practice houses the Bank’s country economists, as well as professional staff with expertise in macroeconomics, fiscal policy, growth, statistics, trade, competition policy and investment climate. MTI professionals most often work across sectors helping carry out key integrative functions.  In this context, MTI professionals are responsible for the preparation and delivery of the majority of the Bank’s Development Policy Operations using both IDA and IBRD resources.  MTI professionals also lead or participate in a wide variety of AAA and client advisory work requiring integrative functions that add to the core Macroeconomic expertise.  As such MTI staff often lead or participate in the preparation of Strategic Country Diagnostics, Country Economic Memorandums and cross sector Public Expenditure Reviews.  An important additional element of engagement in macroeconomic and fiscal policies is carried through work on debt management supported by the Debt Management Facility.  
Knowledge and learning is a central part of MTI’s work focused on 9 thematic areas: (a) macroeconomics; (b) fiscal policy; (c) growth; (d) economic management in resource rich environments; (e) macroeconomic modelling & statistics; (f) trade and regional integration; (g) competition policy; (h) investment policy and promotion; and (i) business regulation.
