Guan Tao said that the long-term negative of net error and omission is indeed related to the phenomenon of capital flight, because theoretically, if net error and omission are mainly caused by statistical reasons, then their direction should be the random distribution of positive and negative, and if the long-term positive or negative of net error and omission, it may reflect the unrecorded hot money inflow or capital flight problem. But he also said that in practice, it needs to be very careful to make the above judgment based on the negative net error and omission. For example, from 2009 to 2013 (except 2012), when the pressure of capital inflow was large, the net error and omission also showed a negative value.
