In commemoration of the 60th Anniversary, the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) organized a high-level seminar entitled “Evolution of National Statistical Systems”. Managing a modern statistical system poses numerous legal, institutional and organizational challenges. Taking advantage of the unique opportunity of the expected presence of close to 100 chief statisticians from around the world, UNSD orchestrated a forum for the exchange of information on innovative approaches to meet the managerial challenges of national statistical systems.
