18.31.        Priorities in metadata management  Although, ideally, the management of metadata would take into account all the recommendations highlighted thus far, countries with less developed systems for statistics on the international supply of services should begin by setting up an exhaustive, consistent and detailed repository (possibly in the form of a metadata registry) with both structural and reference metadata, adopting as much as possible standardized cross-domain metadata concepts, both nationally and internationally. The next immediate priority should be granting to the general public easy, extensive and timely access to metadata. In subsequent phases, the system could be improved by the gradual incorporation of more advanced features, such as a layered presentation of metadata and active links between data and metadata.
