Host country

The United Nations Statistical Commission places a high importance on a host country represented by the National Statistical Office (NSO) as the focal point of the national statistical system. It was established by the HLG-PCCB that hosts are selected on a rotational basis to provide different NSOs with the opportunity to engage in a high-level global dialogue with policy makers, users, other statistical offices and the wider stakeholder community to advocate for the importance of statistics in policy and decision making; strengthen regional data and statistical work, including its development support; and increase the visibility of the host country's work.
