High Level Forum on Statistical Capacity Building For ASEAN Countries

From 7–9 November 2002, PARIS21 and the Asian Development Bank hosted a High Level Forum for South East Asia countries in Manila, Philippines. Participating countries were: Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Brunei. The Forum was the first in a series in the Asia-Pacific Region. The broad goals of the Forum were to assess current capacities, define strategies to strengthen national statistical capabilities so as to meet the increasing data demand of government planners, decision makers and researchers as well as the private sector. A second goal was to mobilize and harness international support, in a catalytic and better aligned manner, to pave the way toward self sustainability.
