The publication was gradually expanded from 1960s onwards. Cont……. National Accounts in Sri Lanka

3 3 The estimates in real terms of the past data series were based on the constant prices of the years as follows, 1958, 1963, 1975, 1990, 1998, and the latest as Cont……. National Accounts in Sri Lanka

29 29 CHALLENGES/DIFFICULTIES Produce QNA within 2 & half months period is a tedious task. Informal Agriculture sector-difficult to get the estimates Lack of data in Informal sector, cottage industries, and other trade and services sectors. Absence of trade and services surveys. Difficulties faced with the estimates currently produced by the construction surveys. Land fragmentations for housing and other building badly affect in estimating nut production of Coconut. Less responses from industrialists. Lack of trained manpower for National Accounts

30 30 TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE REQUIRED Seek Consultancies for Rebasing and linking practices On going training program on SNA93/2008(foreign) Funding facility for SNA training with more practical oriented (local only).

31 31 FURURE PLANS Initiate surveys to capture lacking set of data in the arias of Informal sector (agriculture & cottage industries) Trade & services sector.
