Workshop on the Methodology and Data Compilation of International Merchandise Trade Statistics (IMTS)
Phnom Penh, Cambodia, 2 -5 February, 2010
This UN/DESA workshop on the Methodology and Data Compilation of International Merchandise Trade Statistics (IMTS) aims to strengthen the statistical capacity of the five South East Asian countries Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Timor Leste and Vietnam in the area of IMTS, in particular with respect to data collection and compilation, and the application of the concepts and definitions for IMTS (covering both existing and new or revised recommendations). The workshop is organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in cooperation with the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN/ESCAP) and the National Statistical Institute of Cambodia which will host this workshop. Countries are expected to develop country specific action plans which will serve as guidance for national data compilers to improve IMTS compilation and dissemination.
