The CSO seminar entitled Sector Accounts and Globalisations took place on Friday 17th January 2020 at 9.30am in the Government Press Centre, Merrion Street, Dublin 2.
The seminar examined the annual Institutional Sector Accounts 2018 published in November 2019, and what they tell us about globalisation in Ireland. The 2018 accounts provide new analysis on foreign and domestic corporations, from their output and value added down to their balance sheets.
Building on the 2018 CSO seminar on Globalisation in Ireland, where modified indicators (such as GNI*) and additional detail on the sectors of the Irish economy were discussed, this seminar explored important new detail available in Ireland's Institutional Sector Accounts.
The Institutional Sector Accounts provide the most balanced in-depth statistics available about the Irish economy. They are a top-to-bottom account of the transactions and balance sheets which give valuable insights into the structures and trends in the economic life of the country. Through CSO presentations and user perspectives, this short seminar was designed to help users make the most of the wealth of detail in the accounts, to better understand the role of multinationals here, and to explore the structure of the rest of the domestic economy.
