To measure better the economic activity

The 7th Meeting of the Advisory Expert Group on National Accounts will be held from 23 to 25 April in New York.

The System of National Accounts (SNA) is the internationally agreed standard set of recommendations on how to compile measures of economic activity. This meeting aims to resolve issues on the research agenda of SNA and to review documents and tools for the SNA implementation programme. The United Nations Statistical Commission established the Advisory Expert Group on National Accounts (AEG) to support the Inter Secretariat Working Group on National Accounts (ISWGNA) in carrying out its work programme.

At its 7th meeting, the AEG will consider issues such as the ISWGNA programme of work for the period up to 2014, current research issues and the provision of further guidance on the implementation of the 2008 SNA, review of the SNA research agenda, review of compilation guidance drafted by ISWGNA members, the development of training material on the SNA, issues related to the implementation of the System of National Accounts and the ongoing work in the broader remits of national accounts.
