National statistical development strategy approved
Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has recently signed a decision approving the National Statistical Development Strategy for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision to 2045.
The strategy focuses on modernizing the statistics sector in the direction of innovation, rapid and solid development with proper organizational structure; providing and popularizing statistical information in line with international standards and practices; and forming a quality national concentrated statistical information system.
The statistics sector aims to reach advanced development level in ASEAN by 2030 and meet global modern standards by 2045.
Around 85 percent of paper questionnaires will be replaced with online ones by 2025 and the figure will rise to 95 percent by 2030. Meanwhile, at least 80 percent of statistical products will be timely provided to users by 2025.
Micro-statistical data is hoped to meet at least 30 percent of the demand of domestic and foreign users by 2025, and 60 percent by 2030.
Under the strategy, priority will be given to developing a national statistical information system serving management and administration requirements of all sectors, thus meeting the maximum demand for statistical information and step by step providing micro-statistical data.
Attention will also paid to promoting communication work, diversifying communication forms in order to raise public awareness of the role and importance of statistics.
