Expert group meeting on national accounts

12-05-2009  – 14-05-2009 Cairo

An Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on national accounts is being jointly organised by United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) and the United Nations Statistics Division from 12 to 14 May 2009 in Cairo, Egypt.

The EGM will discuss the assessment of the country practices of the ESCWA region for compiling internationally comparable national accounts. The EGM will also discuss national accounts issues in implementing the revised 2008 System of National Accounts and new classifications of economic activities and products and the main challenges faced by ESCWA countries on issues such as rebasing and linking of national accounts, backcasting, benchmarking and volume measures. Measures for the exhaustive coverage of economic activities in the national accounts including the measurement of the informal sector activities will also be deliberated in the EGM. It is expected that the discussions would contribute to the formulation of a regional plan for implementation of the revised macroeconomic accounting standards of the 2008 SNA for the countries in the region.
