The release of the sixth edition of the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position Manual (BPM6) is the culmination of several

years of work by the IMF Statistics Department and the IMF Committee on Balance of Payments Statistics (the Committee) in collaboration with compilers

and other interested parties worldwide. It updates the fifth edition published in 1993, providing guidance to IMF member countries
on the compilation of balance of payments and international investment position data.
