 9/15/2006United KingdomWe agree with all the recommendations made by the AEG.
 9/15/2006LatviaAfter deep discussions and expert consultations we basically support the 1993 SNA Update Issues.
 7/27/2006EgyptIt is too difficult to estimate real rate of interest as now recommended by SNA93.
 7/24/2006NepalLike the value of other assets the value of financial assets also devaluates. Therefore, it is quite reasonable to estimate real rate of interest as recommended by 1993 SNA. The treatment for nominal interest rate adjusted by inflation (price level) come up with real interest (negative in high inflationary situation) seems to be appropriate.
 1/26/2006IsraelThe following comments are a translation and an update of an internal document prepared in 2002 following problems with registration of negative “real interest” in the national accounts of Israel.
