The United Nations Committee of Experts on Business and Trade Statistics (UNCEBTS) was established by the United Nations Statistical Commission at its 50th session in March 2019. Within the broader context of an integrated economic statistics framework, the objective of the Committee is to strengthen the basic business statistics needed for the overall improvement of economic statistics and for responding to emerging needs. In order to achieve this objective, the programme of work of the Committee focuses on the following five strategic areas: coordination, methodology and concepts; capacity-building; data; and communication.
