ESCAP logoIn line with the Marrakech Action Plan for Statistics and its call for all low-income countries to have a National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS) by 2006, PARIS21 and the Statistics Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) co-organised a series of four sub-regional, high-level forums on strategic planning for statistics for Asian countries, funded by a UNDP-managed Japanese trust fund.

A high-level forum for Southeast Asian countries was held from 6-8 June 2006 in Bangkok, Thailand. Participants included senior data producers and users from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. A number of representatives from international institutions also attended. The objective of the meeting was to assess the current status of strategic statistical planning in the sub-region; to identify the successes and constraints being experienced in implementing existing plans; and to consider solutions to those constraints and practical next steps.

UNESCAP and PARIS21 collaborated with the Thai National Statistical Office in the organisation of the forum. UNESCAP is maintaining a website for this Forum that can be consulted here.

The other three regional forums held within the framework of this programme were:
