Data on performance of the European economy will be more accurate and relevant, as methodological improvements towards capturing globalisation implications will progressively be introduced. Representatives of the Statistical Offices and Eurostat have agreed on the way forward at the meeting " Statistical Implications on Globalisation" today in Bratislava. The EU member countries have already been dealing with 20 projects and pilot changes that will be further more elaborated.

 "On a daily basis, we are confronted in our work with an entirely new reality, often very difficult to measure in a traditional statistical way. As a result, our methodologies require conceptual adaptation, national data sources and methods need to be complemented with innovative ones, and this requires an ever-closer international cooperation,“ said Mariana Kotzeva, Director-General of Eurostat.

One of the conclusions of the meeting is to support the creation of national Large Cases Units (LCUs) and the adequate network in the member states in order to identify and address significant cross-border, inter-regional inconsistencies in the data in a timely manner. The LCU network will support various statistical activities relating to the operation of multinational enterprises in the EU and facilitate the exchange of data between countries for statistical purposes.

 "One of the most significant implications of globalisation is the liberalisation of trade in goods and services. Cross-border commodity flows are increasingly distinguished from financial and accounting flows. I believe that we have also made progress on this issue," added Alexander Ballek, the President of the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic.

 The DGINS conference is the highest forum for the exchange of views on the development of the European Statistical System (ESS). It was held in Slovakia, Bratislava, for the first time.

 The event gathered the Heads of the national statistical institutes of the EU Member States, Eurostat, the European Free Trade Association countries, the Heads of the national statistical institutes from the Western Balkan countries and Turkey. The representatives of the European Central Bank, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the UN Economic Commission for Europe were also present.
