The Statistics Bureau of Japan (SBJ) hosts the 25th Meeting of the Wiesbaden Group on Business Registers

  The 25th Meeting of the Wiesbaden Group on Business Registers will be held in Tokyo, Japan, November 8-11, 2016, and hosted by SBJ. The Wiesbaden Group on Business Registers is an international expert group under the umbrella of the UN Statistical Commission engaged in further development of business registers, survey frames and associated topics. The group provides a forum for the exchange of views and experiences and the conduct of joint work related to the development, maintenance and use of business registers.

  The group was established in 1986 under the name Roundtable of Business Survey Frames, and its first meeting took place in Ottawa, Canada. In 2007 the group was renamed the Wiesbaden Group on Business Registers to be in line with the naming of other UN City Groups. Until 2008 the meetings were organized annually; since 2008 the group has met every second year. The 2016 meeting will be the 25th meeting of the group and over 100 participants from over 50 countries and international organizations are expected to attend.
