imts the international merchandise trade statistics
IMTS (The International Merchandise Trade Statistics)
  • First publication in Norway: 1835
  • IMTS in Norway is mainly based on customs data
  • However, very important data categories (oil, gas, ships and airplanes, electricity, coal) are based on direct reporting of transaction value from enterprises
  • Customs data are transferred on a daily basis

imts the overall picture
IMTS - the overall picture
  • A pretty complete and flexible system is in place
  • Necessary changes due to new recommendations are in practice relatively small

already implemented recommendations
Already implemented recommendations
  • One unique identification of all traders (same as in the business register and business statistics)
  • Mode of transport is included
  • Use of customs procedures is included
  • We do not have FOB type import, but we calculate value of freight and insurance for the BoP based on micro trade data
  • Methods for data quality reports exist and are undergoing improvement. Norwegian requirements are aligned with general international standards
  • Dissemination: we apply the recommended setup
  • Seasonal adjustment: we publish values monthly, indices quarterly
  • SITC is generally used
  • Reimport/reexport is covered

possible changes foreseen
Possible changes foreseen
  • Export of fish caught outside Norwegian territory and delivered directly abroad - new statistics starting March 2011
  • Country of consignment of exports is not covered
    • The Norwegian Customs is considering a possible adjustment in the SAD questionnaire
  • Export declarations below NOK 5000 (~ US $800) are excluded
    • The Norwegian Customs is considering adjustments to cover small values
  • BoP estimated value of trade below thresholds is very low
    • Re-calculated of estimate is under consideration

sits statistics of international trade in services
SITS (Statistics of International Trade in Services)
  • Norges Bank (The Central Bank of Norway) abolished the ITRS-system (International Transactions Reporting System) in 2004
  • The SITS is based on a quarterly sample survey established by Statistics Norway in 2005
    • about 4000 enterprises in annual survey and
    • about 400 in quarterly survey
  • The quarterly survey now has an increased sample
    • Quarterly sample size in 2011: 3000 enterprises
  • The annual survey was terminated in 2009

areas in need of improvement
Areas in need of improvement
  • Repairs and maintenance of goods
    • Calculation based on MITS data, poor data quality
  • Processing services
    • Calculation based on MITS data, poor data quality
  • Merchanting
    • Estimated in SITS, poor data quality
  • FATS (Foreign Affiliates Statistics) is being established
    • Figures on inward FATS publishedin 2010
    • Outward FATS is under development
  • Modes of supply of services
    • So far little attention paid to publishing modes of supply in Norway
    • Particularly poor data quality on Mode 4

visions for its 2020 some comments
Visions for ITS 2020 – some comments
  • The presented visions should for a big part be possible to establish in a ten year period
  • Burden on enterprises must not be too high
    • Statistics on globalized enterprises is complicated
  • Confidentiality requirements is a serious issue
    • In particular in small countries
    • Passive confidentiality is not sufficient for enterprise surveys
  • It is difficult to find resources for establishing new statistics
    • In particular when local demand is little (like for Second partner country data and Cost, insurance and freight)
    • Modes of supply, especially mode 4 will be difficult to identify
