As an important tool for analyzing financial flows between domestic sectors and with the rest of the world, sectoral financial accounts

provide a way of examining the financial effects of economic policy and a map of financial flows to be used to analyze sectoral behavior in times of financial crisis. The seminar offered mainly aims to improve participants' knowledge of statistical methodology underlying the financial accounts, linkages, compilation methods, practical issues and future developments. The seminar will also cover how the CBRT compilers harmonize and bridge national statistics and the requirements of System of National Accounts (SNA 2008) and the European System of Accounts (ESA 2010). Moreover, organizational issues within the compiler agency and with other agencies will be considered. Sessions will be devoted to the work of national compilers of financial accounts at sector level with particular attention paid to difficult areas and subjects that need to be improved. Also, group exercises will enhance the knowledge on particular classification issues.
