Report from the INAG (English)

The first meeting of the 2011 ICP National Accounts Working Group (INAG) was held on February 16-17, 2011, at the World Bank, Washington DC. The purpose of the INAG is to support the Global Office in ensuring that GDP expenditures compiled by the countries participating in the current round of ICP comply as fully as possible with the SNA-93 so that they are as comparable as possible across the countries. Mindful that the reliability of converting national GDPs into a common currency using PPPs depends on the accuracy and comparability of GDP expenditure values at the different levels of the ICP classification, the INAG agreed on a 5-point strategy to support the countries in the compilation of their GDP expenditure statistics in a consistent and comparable manner.
