The fifty-second session of the Statistical Commission approved the recommendation of the Friends of the Chair Group on economic statistics to establish a new United Nations Network of Economic Statisticians (Network) to facilitate networking, coordination and communication on new innovations, experiments and best practices for the purpose of making progress on priorities to keep economic statistics relevant and measuring the multidimensional relationships between the economy, environment and society of the 2030 Agenda. The Network aims to develop an agile and more responsive system of economic statistics based on four thematic workstreams: (a) networking: collaboration and user consultation; (b) transforming and challenging the system: statistical infrastructure and operations, and data solutions; (c) enabling: institutional arrangements and governance; and (d) experimenting, integrating and documenting: statistical framework and methods.

The task teams of the Network will work agilely in sprints of short duration to complete a series of a set amount of work and deliverables for the thematic workstreams of its work program. The short and intense life cycle of these sprints ensures that momentum is sustained to meet clear objectives.

During the Network's first meeting, the members will review the progress to date of the Network Sprints and the proposed work programme for 2023. Moreover, the members will have the opportunity to discuss the draft Network report for the upcoming Statistical Commission session
