Seminar on international trade statistics: Implementation of IMTS 2010 and follow-up to the global forum
26-09-2011 – 30-09-2011 Vilnius
The Global Forum on Trade Statistics in February 2011, jointly organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat) in Geneva, made explicit demands to improve the relevance of international trade statistics by connecting and integrating it with other economic statistics.
As a follow-up to the Global Forum on Trade Statistics, UNSD in cooperation with Eurostat and Statistics Lithuania, is organizing a seminar for countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia from 26 to 30 September in Vilnius, Lithuania. The seminar will focus on the implementation of the new recommendations on merchandise trade statistics (IMTS 2010), which were adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission in 2010, with emphasis on linking trade and other economic statistics.
