Strengthening national statistical systems

Seminar on developing a programme for the implementation of the 2008 SNA and supporting statistics in the Caribbean region will be held in Kingston, Jamaica, on 30 January – 1 February

The event is organized by DESA’s Statistics Division, in collaboration with the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat and the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

The goal is to assist participating Caribbean countries with initiating the formulation of a national strategy and implementation programme for the 2008 System of National Accounts (SNA) and supporting socio-economic statistics with the objective of strengthening the national statistical system in support of improved policy making.

It is expected that this initiative will lead to a multi-year statistical programme helping countries to change over to the 2008 SNA with a view to producing timely comparable national accounts statistics and short-term economic indicators which fully meets the user needs as well as complies with the international standards.
