Since 16 January 2017 the Bank of Italy’s statistical data have been published in the ‘Statistics’ series with a new layout and renewed contents. For further details consult the page Statistics series.
The technology balance of payments brings together some items of the balance of payments that refer to international trade in technology other than physical goods (disembodied technology); the taxonomy has been defined by the OECD. Data are compiled by Bank of Italy and transmitted annually to the OECD, on the basis of the statistical standards set out by the 6th IMF Manual (BPM6).
The note reports and comments annual data according to different breakdowns; by typology of flows, by partner's country or geographical area and by resident economic sector (Ateco). There is also a comparison of Italian data with main OECD countries' data.
