Abstract

The Working Party on the Measurement of International Capital Flows asked a number of countries to prepare brief descriptions of their systems for compiling data on international capital accounts, together with an exposition of the problems they have encountered with their systems and the steps being taken to improve the data. In the following section, 11 of these statements are presented, modified to some extent to meet requirements for length and uniformity of presentation. It is hoped that these statements will illustrate the range of statistical systems in place as well as the problems and possible solutions connected with them.
