Manual on Statistics of International Trade in Services 2010

This Manual has been developed and published jointly by the WTO, the European Commission, the IMF, the OECD, UNCTAD, the United Nations and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

The 2010 edition of the Manual, which was approved by the United Nations Statistical Commission in February 2010, sets out an internationally agreed framework for the compilation of statistics of international trade in services to meet the need for more comparable and comprehensive statistics on services trade. The recommendations in the Manual, which are promoted by the seven organizations, will enable countries to progressively expand and structure information on trade in services in an internationally comparable way.

The Manual conforms with and explicitly relates to the System of National Accounts 2008 and the sixth edition of the International Monetary Fund's Balance of Payments Manual.

Manual is available here.
