Abstract

120. The need for effective mechanisms to provide assurances of integrity is especially important in the case of resource revenue flows. The magnitude of these transactions and their technical complexity provide a high exposure to risks of malpractice. In developing countries, this situation is often combined with a lack of technical capacity and political failure to address risks adequately. The inherent risks107 associated with resource sectors require that governments place special emphasis on data quality, internal controls, and independent external audit. This chapter of the Guide examines some key requirements for establishing good practice in this area of the Code. The role of the EITI validation process is highlighted again in this context.

Abstract

La labor que dedica el FMI a las normas sobre divulgación de datos abarca dos niveles: el Sistema General de Divulgación de Datos (SGDD), que se aplica a todos los países miembros del FMI, y las Normas Especiales para la Divulgación de Datos (NEDD), para los países que tienen o buscan acceso a los mercados internacionales de capital. El marco del SGDD ofrece a los gobiernos una guía sobre el desarrollo general de los datos macroeconómicos, financieros y sociodemográficos fundamentales para el análisis y la formulación de políticas en un contexto que, cada vez más, requiere datos estadísticos relevantes, exhaustivos y exactos. Esta Guía explica la naturaleza, objetivos y funcionamiento del SGDD; qué tipos de datos comprende y cómo participan los países. Brinda a las autoridades estadísticas nacionales una herramienta de gestión y un marco para promover una metodología estadística sólida, la compilación de datos con criterios profesionales y la divulgación de datos. Esta Guía reemplaza a la versión actualizada en marzo de 2002 e incorpora los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio, de las Naciones Unidas, como elementos específicos del componente sociodemográfico del SGDD, desarrollado en colaboración con el Banco Mundial.

Abstract

Before preparing a financial program or analyzing developments in a country, sufficient data on the economy’s past and expected performance are necessary. If the basis for the program or analysis is deficient, the program will probably not be well prepared and the objectives will not be achieved. All those data that may have an impact on the preparation of a program are needed. IMF missions are sometimes described as “hungry” for both statistics and data in general, but this hunger is logical, because before giving any advice or taking any decision, the mission must know what is happening in a country. The term “data” is used broadly here, meaning not only statistical information, but also details of pertinent legislation and of rules and regulations connected with the implementation of such legislation.

Abstract

4.1 Many countries compile and disseminate in national publications and/or websites information on FDI, typically in the context of balance of payments and IIP statistics. To facilitate analysis, these statistics are often extended to provide geographic information on FDI transactions and positions vis-à-vis individual partner countries or regions. Many countries also compile FDI statistics broken down by industrial sector.
