Government Finance Statistics

This learning initiative concludes the multi-year project on developing GFS in South East Europe, carried out by the IMF Statistics Department in partnership with the CEF and with funding from the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). The workshop will advise compilers of statistics on developing GFS data and data reporting, both to the IMF and the EU (cf. the Maastricht deficit and debt criteria, and the Excessive Deficit Procedure). It will also review the project's achievements and benefits as well as possible directions for continued learning on the topic in future.

Please note that participation is by invitation only.
