  2. 2. Balance of Payments Division IMF Statistics Department Some key issues  Comprehensive definition of direct investment  Substantial progress made in recent years  Adoption of new methodological standards  Collection and dissemination of comprehensive and harmonized FDI position data and metadata (inward and outward) with geographical detail (e.g., CDIS)  The need for compiling and disseminating some data does not become evident until a crisis underscores its importance.
  3. 3. Balance of Payments Division IMF Statistics Department CPIS and CDIS: Increasing geographical coverage Not Reporting CDIS only CPIS only Both CPIS and CDIS
  4. 4. Balance of Payments Division IMF Statistics Department Few additional remarks  Importance of internationally-accepted statistical standards  Countries’ efforts in the compilation and dissemination of supplementary information of direct investment are most welcome  Exploring new concepts may be a valuable avenue for future improved standards, but it is essential to implement to the extent possible the current international standards
