2 STD/TBS/Trade and Competitiveness Section Background for the flash survey on Travel Following a request by WPTGS delegates, OECD has asked country delegates to check travel metadata and, if necessary, describe in one page the current and any alternative methods being considered for estimating in the balance of payments (i) inward and outward travel spending estimates; and, (ii) inward and outward travelers transportation costs (included in passenger transportation). 2 3rd WPTGS meeting 4-6 October 2010, OECD

3 STD/TBS/Trade and Competitiveness Section Travel and passenger transportation services 1.Definitions and relation to tourism statistics. 2.A substantial share of total trade in services is still covered by Travel (even if declining). 3.Most Travel services fall under GATS mode 2 consumption abroad 4.In a general context of resource constraints, a large number of sources is used which are increasingly innovative. (i.e., credit card info, mobile phone localisation of foreigners) 3

4 STD/TBS/Trade and Competitiveness Section Definition and relation to tourism statistics. In MSITS 2010 and BPM6, the travel component covers on the credit side, goods and services for own use or to give away acquired from an economy by non-residents during visits to that economy, and on the debit side goods and services, for own use or to give away acquired from other economies by residents during visits to other economies. Travel covers any length of stay provided there is no change of residence Other transactions related to these visits are included in passenger transport services. 4

5 STD/TBS/Trade and Competitiveness Section Passenger transport services Passenger transportation services cover the transport of people. It covers all services in the international transport of non resident by resident carriers (credit) and that of residents by non residents carriers (debit). Also included are passenger services performed within a territory by non resident carriers. 5

6 STD/TBS/Trade and Competitiveness Section MSITS 2010 and International Recommendations for Tourism Statistics (IRTS 2008) The annex V of MSITS describes the relation of the travel component (and transportation passenger services) of EBOPS as defined in MSITS 2010 and the concept of tourism expenditure as defined in ITRS Bridge table that separate two basic issues (i) the scope of individuals to which BoP relates and visitors (ii) the scope of expenditures considered within travel and tourism consumption. Also BPM6 proposes a supplementary item, Tourism- related services in travel and passenger transport, as an estimate of tourism as an international traded service. 6
