International statistical comparisons depend heavily upon a solid foundation of reliable, high-quality, trades statistics. The upcoming Seminar provides an important opportunity to share best practices and build the capacity of national statistical systems in Arab countries.
The regional seminar, a close collaboration between UN DESA¿s Statistics Division (UNSD), the UN Economic Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), Department of Statistics of Jordan, the Arab Institute for Training and Research in Statistics (AITRS) and the Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC), will feature an opening statement and a roundtable discussion on future developments of international trade statistics.
It is expected the seminar will focus on the compilation of statistics surrounding international trade in services, and on linking trade and enterprise statistics in view of an increasing globalization of production of goods and services.
Lessons learned from the regional workshop on international trade in services statistics held in January 2011 will also be discussed alongside quality assurance and institutional arrangements and dissemination of statistics.
