Meetings of National Statistical Offices of OIC Member Countries

One of the basic mandates of SESRIC is to collect, collate, process and disseminate socio-economic statistics and information on and for the utilisation of the member countries. In order to carry out this mandate in the best way, SESRIC has to have close relations with the National Statistical Offices (NSOs) of the OIC Member Countries.

In order to increase synergy, SESRIC organized several meetings which brought delegates of NSOs of the Member Countries, OIC institutions and several international and regional institutions together.

In the last decade, there has been proliferation of national, regional and international initiatives, each containing a set of goals and targets that must be monitored for progress and performance. In addition to these initiatives, our member countries are being challenged by new development issues such as financial and economic crisis, climate change, food security, etc. which are affecting all aspects of our lives. It is crucial to have access to timely, accurate, consistent and reliable data to undertake studies and identify the most affected countries by these issues and initiatives with the view to enable the development institutions intending to respond to the needs of these countries. To this end, given that the National Statistical Organizations (NSOs) of the Member Countries of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) -who are at different levels of development and face various constraints and problems- are the primary sources of data, the effective cooperation among them will be vital.
