Abstract

This Coordinated Direct Investment Survey Guide (Guide) has been prepared to assist economies in participating in the Coordinated Direct Investment Survey (CDIS). The CDIS is being conducted under the auspices of the Statistics Department of the IMF across a wide range of economies. The survey is conducted simultaneously by all participating economies; uses consistent definitions; and encourages best practices in collecting, compiling, and disseminating data on direct investment positions. The CDIS is thus an important tool in capturing world totals and the geographic distribution of direct investment positions, thereby contributing to important new understandings of the extent of globalization, and improving the overall quality of direct investment data worldwide. As of the writing of this updated Guide, more than 100 economies participate in the CDIS.

Abstract

Esta Guía ha sido elaborada para ayudar a las economías a participar en la Encuesta Coordinada sobre la Inversión Directa (ECID). La ECID, que se está llevando a cabo simultáneamente en todas las economías participantes, se basa en definiciones uniformes, e incentiva la adopción de prácticas óptimas para la recopilación, compilación y divulgación de datos sobre las posiciones de inversión directa. Por lo tanto, la ECID es una herramienta importante para cuantificar el total mundial de las posiciones de inversión directa y para representar su distribución geográfica, contribuyendo así a la formación de nuevas e importantes apreciaciones sobre el alcance de la globalización y al mejoramiento de la calidad general de los datos mundiales sobre inversión directa. Al momento de actualización de la Guía, más de 100 economías participaban en la ECID.

Abstract

Le Guide de l'enquête coordonnée sur l'investissement direct (ECID) a été préparé pour aider les économies qui participent à cette enquête. L'enquête est menée sous les auspices du département des statistiques du FMI dans un large éventail de pays. Elle est organisée simultanément par tous les pays participants, recourt à des définitions cohérentes, et encourage les bonnes pratiques en matière de collecte, d'établissement et de diffusion de données sur les positions d'investissement direct. Elle constitue donc un outil important pour prendre la mesure des totaux mondiaux et de la répartition géographique des positions d'investissements directs et contribue ainsi à l'établissement de nouvelles conclusions importantes sur l'étendue de la mondialisation, ainsi qu'à l'amélioration de la qualité globale des données sur l'investissement direct dans le monde. Au moment de la rédaction de ce guide actualisé, plus de 100 pays participaient à l'enquête coordonnée.

Weak growth and underlying structural vulnerabilities persist in both Curaçao and Sint Maarten. Worsened macroeconomic conditions—reflecting the spillovers from one of Curaçao’s largest trading partners and the devastation from Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Sint Maarten—make the need for policy adjustment and structural reforms aimed at ensuring fiscal sustainability, enhancing competitiveness, strengthening investor confidence, and developing capacity more urgent.

The past decade has witnessed a progressive weakening of the Antillean economy, and prospects for a recovery depend on reinvigorating and sustaining adjustment. There is a need for more vigorous reforms, well coordinated across governments and supported by building social consensus. Fiscal policy can support growth over the medium term by reforming the tax system and lowering the tax and administrative burden on the private sector. Continuing progress with structural reforms is critical to improve the prospects for job creation and economic growth.

This 2019 Article IV Consultation focuses on Curaçao and Sint Maarten’s near and medium-term challenges and policy priorities and was prepared before coronavirus disease 2019 became a global pandemic and resulted in unprecedented strains in global trade, commodity and financial markets. The fiscal position in Curaçao improved in the past two years, in part due to implemented fiscal measures. Both Curaçao and Sint Maarten would benefit from introducing a Fiscal Responsibility Framework. It could incorporate a central government debt ratio as a long-term anchor and operational rules calibrated to meet it. The report suggests that risks in the financial sector need to be addressed as a matter of priority. The authorities should develop a strategy for addressing financial sector vulnerabilities with the objective of preserving financial stability while minimizing fiscal costs. Significant strengthening of supervision and a complete overhaul of the bank resolution framework are also urgently needed. An across-the board improvement in the governance framework should be a key priority in both countries. Vulnerabilities in the financial system point to the need to strengthen governance in the financial sector.
