External sector statistics for development planning: A matter for statisticians and planners?

Ever since its creation CEPAL has sought to foster the improvement of statistics, and to that end has encouraged discussion of the subject between planners and statisticians on several occasions. The author believes that in the case of foreign trade statistics, leaving aside the important action which may be taken by these professionals in the future, certain obstacles prevent their improvement because of the influence of certain factors which are directly linked to the external sector and which do not arise in other sectors of statistics.
