The African Centre for Statistics (ACS) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), in collaboration with the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) will organize a virtual third regional thematic seminar on System of National Accounts (SNA) Update Programme from 6 to 9 June 2022.
The regional thematic seminar is part of the follow-up actions recommended by the Global Consultative Group of Experts on National Accounts (AEG) responsible for updating the SNA. This follows the information seminar detailing the new procedure on the 2008 SNA update process held in June 2021 and a second regional thematic webinar held in November 2021 which was focused on some of the major research areas of the SNA.
The main objective of this thematic seminar is to provide a forum for all African countries to be engaged and participate directly in the global SNA update programme by discussing and commenting on the guidance notes (GNs) and participating in the assessment and experimental estimates (AEE). The online seminar will focus on five priority areas and thematic topics: communication, financial and payments systems, globalization, well-being and sustainability, and Islamic finance.
