30-01-2013 – 01-02-2013 Kingston
The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), in collaboration with the CARICOM Secretariat and the United Nations Economic Commission for Lain America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) is organizing a seminar on: Developing a programme for the implementation of the 2008 SNA and supporting statistics in the CARICOM region. The objective of the seminar is to assist participating Caribbean countries with initiating the formulation of a national strategy and implementation programme for the 2008 SNA and supporting 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 helping countries to change over to the 2008 SNA with a view to producing timely comparable national accounts statistics and short-term economic indicators which fully meets the user needs as well as complies with the international standards.
