The seminar was conducted under the framework of improving the compilation of economic statistics in the aim of achieving a wider coverage, hence contributing to the monitoring of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and falls under the project on Statistics and Data funded by the United Nations Development Account.
According to international best practices in the area of national accounts, SUTs are considered to be the perfect framework for improving the inclusivity of GDP statistics for all economic activities, improving the consistency between all economic statistics and facilitating the coverage of informal activities.
The seminar will address many topics, the most important of which include an overview on the SUTs in the System of National Accounts (SNA), presentations and discussions on the compilation techniques of SUTs, balancing and valuation, tracking the informal sector, presentation of data sources and assessment of data availability for SUTs.
