Within the framework of implementation of the Work Plan 2 of the ARISE Plus project, ARISE Plus and the ASEAN Secretariat (ASEANstats) are jointly organizing the Regional Training on IMTS 2010 Manual, on 27 – 30 August 2019, in Da Nang, Viet Nam.
The Training focuses on the following topics of IMTS: Conceptual Framework, Institutional Arrangement, Production and Compilation, Metadata and Quality, Dissemination and Analysis, and New Areas of Work. The training was designed specifically for trade data compilers and frequent users and analysts of trade data.
The specific objectives of the training are to enhance the capacity of trade statisticians to apply the most recent internationally a-greed recommendations on IMTS (IMTS 2010), to define best possible data sources, to set up or enforce collection systems, and to strengthen statistical production processes. Furthermore, the training could raise awareness of the importance of quality, metadata, timely dissemination, and linkages to economic analysis and national policy objectives.
