CoverQuality report on balance of payments (BOP), international trade in services (ITS) and foreign direct investment (FDI) statistics

The purpose of this paper is to present the overview quality report on balance of payments (BOP), international trade in services statistics (ITSS) and foreign direct investment (FDI) statistics for the year 2015, transmitted by the EU Member States, Iceland and Norway.
