Despite some progress in a number of countries, many developing countries are still a long way from actually adjusting their supporting collections of economic statistics for implementing the System of National Accounts (SNA).

The forty-fourth session of the United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC) requested DESA’s Statistics Division, in collaboration with the Inter-secretariat Working Group on National Accounts (ISWGNA), supporting countries and other regional organisations, to scale up coordination, advocacy and resources for the implementation of the SNA and supporting statistics at the national level where required.

This seminar, which brings together the ISWGNA, the Advisory Expert Group on National Accounts (AEG) and representative from a number of countries with less developed statistical systems, aims to develop proposals for scaling up the effectiveness of the coordination and funding for the implementation of the SNA for consideration by the ISWGNA and to discuss practical issues related to the topics to be discussed by the AEG.
