The seventh session of the ESCAP Committee on Statistics will take place from 26-28 August 2020 as a virtual meeting to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants given the COVID-19 outbreak as well as on-going travel restrictions in many countries in the Asia-Pacific region.
The seventh session of the Committee on Statistics will focus on three priority areas highlighted by countries in the region: accounting for integrated statistics and analysis, embracing big data to modernize official statistics, and transforming human resources management.
The Committee will also deliberate upon matters of strategic importance to regional statistical development, regional cooperation and the formulation of regional positions to advance official statistics in line with existing commitments, including the 2016 Collective Vision and Framework for Action by the Asia-Pacific statistical community and the 2019 Declaration on Navigating Policy with Data to Leave No One Behind.
