what are the main drivers of modernization
What are the main drivers of modernization?
  • Creation of a more adaptive and cost-effective information management environment through stronger collaboration
    • Processes that are more agile and quality assured, while requiring less resources to operate and maintain
  • Modernize information systems to address the evolving field of statistics and maintain relevance across developed and developing countries
  • Regional collaboration and influence global directions
    • Collaborative efforts are likely to be more cost-effective and of higher quality
specificities of asia pacific region in the field of modernisation
Specificities of Asia-Pacific region in the field of modernisation
  • Cost-effectiveness benefit was assessed to be of less immediate priority
  • Improved quality could be taken up as a key objective
  • Concepts, standards and tools are relatively new to a large number of countries in the region
  • NSOs in the region are most often structured by statistical areas or domains
  • No transnational legislation on statistics
  • The least developed countries lack the full range of methodological and information technology expertise

  • The primary focus of the project will be to promote the use of SDMX among national statistical systems in the region and build regional capacities in applying it
  • The project will focus on
    • Mapping of DSD for data exchange (reuse global DSD),
    • Capacity building on using tools to support automated data exchange (e.g. Eurostat SDMX-RI).
