A Workshop on “A Dashboard for Financial Assessment and Early Warning System” took place on 19th October 2017 at the Ministry of Finance Conference Hall with the participation of DGPA Decisional Support and Financial Analyses Head of Department Mr Halit Burak TOPCU and Turkstat National Accounts Head of Department Ms Tulay KORKMAZ.
The event was organized in the framework of the Twinning project to discuss practical implications of Turkish, Italian and European practices on indicators for financial assessment and early warning systems.
A series of presentations informed participants, including the DGPA top management and some officials from municipalities and Turkstat, on the results achieved by the Twinning activities. At the micro-level, special focus was given on how to calculate relevant financial indicators, analyse their distribution characteristics, measure efficiency and use the data in a dashboard tool, with examples and DGPA’s views on possible applications. At the macro-level, Turkstat shared its experience on ESA GFS data and usage in national accounts. The European Union framework for macroeconomic and financial sustainability evaluation was also discussed, as well as a feasible extension of these early warning tools for fiscal surveillance in Turkey.
Overall, the Workshop constituted a profitable opportunity for different DGPA units, Turkstat and the Italian experts to share methodology and practical applications on useful analysis of public finance data at the macro and micro level.
