Balance of Payments Task Team (BPTT)

The Balance of Payments Task Team (BPTT) will advise the IMF’s Committee on Balance of Payments Statistics (BOPCOM) in the process of revising the BPM6. BPTT will deal with general principles, structural and cross-cutting issues, review and coordinate the specialized topics covered by the other Task Teams (TTs), and liaise and ensure coordination with the TTs working under the aegis of the Advisory Expert Group on National Accounts (AEG) and with ongoing work in other statistical domains.

BPTT will ensure overall consistency of the proposals before they are presented to BOPCOM as well as ensure no duplication of work. BPTT will also provide advice to BOPCOM on the Annotated Outline to be prepared by the IMF’s Statistics Department and thereafter on the draft chapters of BPM7.  

BPTT would be operational during the BPM6 update process. Further details on the mandate and operations; scope; guidance notes and working procedures; composition; and key issues to be addressed by BPTT are provided in the Terms of Reference.
