The ASEAN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Indicators Baseline Report and an online database portal for ASEAN SDG indicators were released at an online event on October 23. They are part of an initiative to set up an ASEAN statistical information system on sustainable development, proposed by Vietnam as the ASEAN Chair in 2020.
General Director of the General Statistics Office Nguyen Thi Huong said the initiative aims to form a synchronous statistical information system on sustainable development, ensuring sufficient information supply for the monitoring and assessment of sustainable development in the ASEAN Community.
It also looks to enhance partnerships in the implementation of SDG indicators, improve member countries capacity for collecting and processing data, and promote the ASEAN Statistics Division (ASEANstats)s coordinating role.
