As part of the effort to improve estimates of remittance flows within the framework of Balance of Payments statistics, the IMF's Statistics Department, together with the "Luxembourg Group," has completed a draft of the new International Transactions in Remittances: Guide for Compilers and Users (RCG). The chapters and appendices are presented at the IMF's website.
Comments on the draft RCG, with particular reference to content, clarity, and detail, are welcome and should be sent using the form provided on the IMF website by October 24, 2008. Notes for reviewers are also provided on the website. A revised version of the RCG is expected to be posted on the website by the end of the year.
