Medstat supports Mediterranean partner countries to take part in OECD experts meeting
October 3, 2017
The international meeting of the Group of Experts on Business Registers, which is organised every two years, was held on 27 to 29 September 2017 at OECD headquarters in Paris. The event was organised jointly by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), Eurostat and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The meeting gathered a total of 105 participants from a number of countries, with a majority from Europe and Asia. For the first time, South Mediterranean countries were present, with the financial support of the MEDSTAT IV project (one participant per country).
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.
