Supporting statistics for improved policy-making
Seminar on developing a programme for the implementation of the 2008 System of National Accounts (SNA) and supporting statistics in Southern Africa will take place in Pretoria, South Africa on 17-19 October
DESA’s Statistics Division in collaboration with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UN-ECA) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC), is organizing a seminar on “Developing a programme for the implementation of the 2008 SNA and supporting statistics in Southern Africa”.
The objective of the seminar is to assist Southern African countries with initiating the formulation of a national strategy and implementation programme for the 2008 SNA and supporting system-wide socio-economic statistics with the objective of strengthening the national statistical system in support of improved policy-making. It is expected that this initiative would lead to a multi-year statistical programme to move the countries over to the 2008 SNA and to establish a minimum common data set of annual and high frequency statistics.
