Seminar on Accounting for Global Value Chains - jointly organized by Eurostat and UNSD
06-06-2017 – 08-06-2017 Luxembourg City
Eurostat and UNSD are jointly organizing a seminar on Accounting for Global Value Chains in Luxembourg on 6-8 June 2017.
The seminar will discuss the Handbook on Accounting for Global Value Chains. The main objective of the Handbook is to provide a high-level overview of how economic statistics can be made more accurate and relevant in measuring the effects of globalization in national accounts and business statistics. The Handbook will provide a national perspective on globalization based on a Global Value Chain approach for specific industries in a multi-country supply chain of goods, value adding services and institutional arrangements. It should be helpful to a wide range of data compilers.
8th meeting of the Advisory expert group on national accounts
29-05-2013 – 31-05-2013 Luxembourg
The Advisory Expert Group on National Accounts (AEG) has been established to assist the Inter-secretariat Working Group on National Accounts (ISWGNA) in resolving issues on the research agenda of the System of National Accounts (SNA), identifying emerging research issues, and assisting the ISWGNA in the review of the SNA implementation programme. The composition of the AEG reflects the global community representing all regions in the world and comprises 16 members (not including the five representatives of the members of the ISWGNA, Eurostat, IMF, OECD, UN and WB). The main purpose of the 8th AEG meeting is to consider guidance on issues related to the implementation of the SNA, such as: financial output, global production, delineation of head offices, holding companies and special purpose entities, pension entitlements, stability fees, treatment of freight and insurance in the 2008 SNA, and the SDMX initiative.
Scaling up the coordination and resources for the implementation of the SNA
28-05-2013 – 29-05-2013 Luxembourg
Evidence shows that, despite some progress in a number of countries, many developing countries are still a long way from actually adjusting their supporting collections of economic statistics for implementing the System of National Accounts (SNA). The forty-fourth session of the United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC) requested the Statistics Division, in collaboration with the Inter-secretariat Working Group on National Accounts (ISWGNA), supporting countries and other regional organisations, to scale up coordination, advocacy and resources for the implementation of the SNA and supporting statistics at the national level where required. This seminar, which brings together the ISWGNA, the Advisory Expert Group on National Accounts (AEG) and representative from a number of countries with less developed statistical systems, aims to develop proposals for scaling up the effectiveness of the coordination and funding for the implementation of the SNA for consideration by the ISWGNA and to discuss practical issues related to the topics to be discussed by the AEG.
Joint UNSD- Eurostat conference on international outreach and coordination in national accounts for sustainable growth and development

The United Nations Statistics Division and Eurostat will jointly organize a high level Conference on International Outreach and Coordination in National Accounts for Sustainable Growth and Development, on6 - 8 May 2008 in Luxembourg, Luxembourg. This Conference will be an opportunity to bring together producers and users of statistics as well as technical and financial partners from all regions of the world. The main objective is to facilitate the outreach of the System of National Accounts (SNA) within a context that is mindful of the development cooperation issues necessary to support poverty reduction and sustainable growth and development strategies. More specific objectives include:(1) facilitating the outreach of the SNA in developing countries;(2) promoting international coordination in an area where different partners are particularly active at bilateral and multilateral level;(3) establishing directions for development co-operation in the field of national accounts in order to improve coordination and efficiency of aid and sustainability of project results;(4) orienting national statistical systems at country level to improve the quality, production and dissemination of data in a sustainable way.
It is expected that, at its conclusion, the conference will adopt an action plan for implementation in addition to operational recommendations for the attention of the developing countries and their technical and financial partners.
