Workshop on Statistics of International Trade in Services
Challenges and Good Practices
The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) is organising a workshop on statistics of international trade in services in the Latin American and the Caribbean countries in collaboration with the Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE) and Banco Central do Brasil and Economic Commission of Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).
The workshop will be hosted by the Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatística (IBGE) in Rio de Janeiro between 1 and 4 December 2009.
The objective of the workshop is to train representatives from national statistical offices and central banks from the Latin American and Caribbean countries on methodological development of the statistics of trade in services and also the current country-practices in compiling trade in services statistics. The training will focus on both the interpretation of conceptual issues and options for the implementation of the international recommendations in country specific circumstances and facilitate the establishment of a network of statisticians in the participating countries working on service trade statistics.
