Previous Updates

BEA has adopted the use of standard international terminology in BEA's international economic accounts by replacing the term "multinational companies" with "multinational enterprises" and the term "financial and operating (F&O)" statistics with "activities of multinational enterprises (AMNE)." This change in terminology reflects BEA's effort to conform more closely with international guidelines and does not affect the actual statistics produced.
