17.1 For many years Australia has published its balance of payments and international investment position statistics not only on a global basis (that is, recording its economic relationships with all other countries), but also on selected country and regional bases (classification by partner country). However, international standards for the compilation of such statements were only enunciated for the first time with the issue of BPM5. In line with this increased international emphasis on production of partner country statements, Australia will continue to compile and publish such statements annually in accordance with these international guidelines.
