Laos, Luxembourg highlight cooperation in statistics development

The governments of both nations have highlighted ongoing implementation of the Lao PDR-Luxembourg Cooperation Project in Statistics (LLPS) in support of efforts by Laos to produce and disseminate high quality official statistics compliant with international standards.

The project that started in 2017 and will continue until end of 2020, focuses on developing the new statistical domain of environmental statistics in Laos, on social statistics (including poverty statistics), on institutional strengthening and good governance, and on setting up a sustainable traineeship and exchange programme between the Lao Statistics Bureau (LSB) and National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies of Luxembourg (STATEC).
LLPS Project Director, Ms Phetsamone Sone, who is also Deputy Head of the Lao Statistics Bureau, reported at the second steering committee meeting and annual review of the project in Vientiane on Tuesday that cooperation between LSB and STATEC will continue until December 31, 2020.
“The project aims to support the efforts of the government of Laos and the LSB to produce and disseminate high quality official statistics compliant with international standards and guidelines,” she said.
She said the cooperation was focused on the five components of environment statistics; social statistics including poverty statistics; institutional strengthening – support to good governance of LSB and the national statistical system; traineeship and exchange programme; and project management.
During the meeting, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment, Dr Samaychanh Boupha, who is also Head of the Lao Statistics Bureau, noted the successful collaboration between Laos and Luxembourg in statistics since 2017 which was being implemented by LSB and STATEC and supported by the Luxembourg government.
In Laos, the project leader committee includes the LSB, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and Department of International Cooperation under the Ministry of Planning and Investment.
The project is proceeding under the Statistics Law and Strategy for the Development of National Statistical System 2016-2025 along with the 2030 vision. The second steering committee meeting and annual review of the cooperation project were attended by the Chargé d’Affaires of the Luxembourg Embassy in Laos, Mr Sam Schreiner, Director General of National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies of Luxembourg, Dr Serge Allegrezza and other officials.
