Focusing on the themes of modernization of data service and the Economic Census, they discussed challenges for the future and exchanged information with the SBJ staff through mutual presentations on implementation status.

The missions aim to develop official statistics for both countries, and have served as opportunities for the two offices to discuss their experiences and challenges with regard to a wide range of statistical issues, such as organization, surveys, tabulation and data provision, as well as the circumstances of local statistical organizations.

Ms. Ahn Jung-Im Director-General, Bureau of Informatics and Service
