The Statistics Division of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the Statistics Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) are organizing a “Workshop on Islamic Finance in the National Accounts”.
The workshop will bring together representatives from the national statistical offices and other organizations of countries where Islamic finance is important. It aims to increase the capacity of participating countries on the statistical treatment of Islamic finance in the national accounts. The workshop will address proposals on how to sectorize Islamic financial institutions, classify and record Islamic financial instruments and the corresponding property income and related transactions; and calculate and record the output of Islamic financial services. Participants will share country practices in the compilation of statistics on Islamic finance and the challenges and issues involved. Experts from regional and international organizations and individual experts will also be invited to participate as resource persons.
The specific expected accomplishments are:

  • Increased knowledge of national statisticians and central bank experts, where relevant, of the differences between Islamic finance and conventional finance and the implications for the national accounts.
  • Increased skills and knowledge of national statisticians and central bank experts, where relevant, in the statistical treatment of Islamic finance in the national accounts.
  • Strengthened capacity within countries with Islamic finance to improve their compilation of national accounts data.
