The session gives a broad overview of current developments and prospects in the statistics. Countries could present their efforts to reconcile balance of payments statistics (BoP) and national accounts, and share experiences on the dissemination of combined products. Furthermore, the policy use of the statistics will be illustrated on basis of the BOP and financial accounts that go into the EU’s Macroeconomic Imbalance Procedure, including the requirements for the quality of the statistics that derive from it. Finally, major medium- and long-term improvements to the statistics will be discussed. We could invite speakers from the relevant ESCB and ESS fora. The relevant G-20 requirements could be an element as well.
Integrating National Accounts and Balance of Payments Statistics in Austria
Michael Andreasch
Oesterreichische Nationalbank, Vienna

The presentation will explain the decision to integrate financial accounts data and balance of payments data in an integrated framework both from a technical and analytical viewpoint. The presentation will highlight the importance of the respective organisational solutions, the interaction between the two domains within one division as part of the statistics department.
Furthermore, the presentation will show the pros and cons of the solution in Austria and finally will demonstrate the usefulness of the integration for the analysis of: a) the functional approach of BOP statistics combined with the breakdown by financial instrument in the financial accounts and b) the sector analysis comparing the contribution of individual sectors for the overall net lending/net borrowing position of Austria and the direct cross-border activities of various economic sectors
