With nearly 30 years of experience in trade policy, Mr. Magiera spent nearly 12 years in Indonesia, much of the time working in the Ministry of Industry and Trade on Nathan’s PEG project. He analyzed issues related to the WTO, APEC and ASEAN; built the analytical capacity of Indonesia’s tariff teams, negotiating groups for services and agriculture, and trade remedies committee. In his last three years in Indonesia, Mr. Magiera helped the government adopt best practices for telecommunications regulation—establishing an independent regulator, effecting pricing reform, and licensing new telecommunications providers.
Since rejoining headquarters, Mr. Magiera has contributed to agriculture projects in Moldova, automobile tariff restructuring in Egypt, telecommunications reform in the Philippines, regional trade in services for the ASEAN Secretariat, and several U.S. antitrust cases.
Before joining Nathan, Mr. Magiera led the USDA’s European and the international trade policy branches, serving on U.S. delegations to the OECD and directing strategic policy analysis for the Uruguay Round. The USDA recognized his leadership with four superior service awards; and the American Agricultural Economics Association recognized his Uruguay Round analysis with its award for effective policy communication.
Mr. Magiera has consulted with the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, OECD, and the U.N.’s Food and Agricultural Organization. He began his career at an economic modeling consultancy in Europe, and spent two years with the OECD in Paris studying agricultural protectionism.
