Balance of Payments Survey FORMS

The Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) has embarked on a project to produce Annual Balance of Payments (BOP) statistics for the Cayman Islands in accordance with the standards issued by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The BOP summarizes the economic transactions of a country's economy with the rest of the world. The BOP is therefore a vital data set for economic policy, planning and decision making, as it shows a country's status in terms of its international trade performance and ability to attract foreign investment.

The ESO, like its counterparts in other countries, will generate data for the BOP through surveys of businesses, non-profit institutions and government establishments.

We are thus seeking your cooperation in completing and returning this by May 12, 2017. Your response is safe, confidential and will be used exclusively for compiling the aggregate balances of the country. Section 17 of the Statistics Law prohibits the communication or publication of individual or identifiable business information.
