The EU-funded MEDSTAT project is supporting the participation of 14 statisticians from the Mediterranean partner countries to the 61st World Statistics Congress International Statistics Institute (ISI) in Marrakech on July 16-21.
Held once every two years, the ISI World Conference is a unique opportunity for statisticians from all over the world to meet and discuss key critical issues for the development of statistics.
The Mediterranean partner countries will be directly involved in four sessions of the scientific programme addressing transport statistics, international migration statistics, business registers and gender statistics.
In total, the MEDSTAT IV project will finance the participation of 14 statisticians from the partner countries who will contribute in one or several of these sessions (5 from Morocco, 3 for Egypt, 3 from Jordan, 2 from Palestine and 1 from Tunisia).
The MEDSTAT IV project provides expertise and technical support to promote the harmonisation of statistics in line with EU and international standards in 6 domains: business register and business, trade and balance of payments, energy, labour market, migration and transport. It follows on the previous phase implemented over the period 2010-2013.
