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


Regional perspective on modernization
Regional perspective on modernization modernisation

  • CST 3 (2012) proposes the establishment of

    • High-level strategic body

    • Network of Experts

  • Strategic Advisory Body for the Modernization of Statistical Production and Services in Asia and the Pacific (SAB-AP)

    • The mission is “To raise awareness and build capacity, particularly related to concepts, methods and standards, to support national modernization efforts”

  • The Body has 7 members (Australia, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Rep. of Korea, Samoa, Viet Nam) and is chaired by Australia

  • First meeting of the body in November 2013 in Japan (next month)

ADB/ESCAP Project on SDMX groups

  • Direct outcome from the MSIS 2013 EGM

  • Working group (WG-SDMX) will be established under the auspices of the SAB-AP

  • 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).


Adb escap project on sdmx cont d
ADB/ESCAP Project on SDMX (cont’d) groups

  • Focus on economic statistics indicators (ADB Key Indicators), most likely limited to NA or BoP in the first stage

  • Take into account the specific needs of other international organizations collecting economic data (e.g. OECD, IMF, UNSD, WB, etc.)

  • In the pilot phase focus on 4 to 5 countries in Asia-Pacific

  • Timeline:
