Session III: Statistics on a from-whom-to-whom Basis
Third IMF Statistical Forum
The 2008 global financial crisis highlighted the need to better identify the build-up of risks in the financial sector and to understand financial interrelations among the sectors of an economy and between domestic sectors and their counterparties in the rest of the world. Statistics on a from-whom- to-whom basis permit the analysis of relationships between systemically relevant institutional sectors and subsectors within an economy and also between these sectors and subsectors and non-residents. Trade and production statistics can also be set up on a "from-whom-to-whom" basis, illustrating the generation of value added as a result of international exchange of products and services in a network of labor partition among companies.
