Con­tinue to sup­port Ja­maica’s growth and de­vel­op­ment

Jamaica Gleaner - - CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF PROVIDING STATISTICS -

THE GOV­ERN­MENT of Ja­maica ex­tends heart­felt con­grat­u­la­tions to the Sta­tis­ti­cal In­sti­tute of Ja­maica (STATIN) on the oc­ca­sion of its 70th an­niver­sary of ster­ling con­tri­bu­tion to na­tional de­vel­op­ment.

Sta­tis­tics play a vi­tal role in eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and and a start­ing point for ac­count­abil­ity and trans­parency in gov­ern­ment. In ad­di­tion, they en­gen­der fair­ness and cul­pa­bil­ity in the al­lo­ca­tion of re­sources, which is in line with my gov­ern­ment’s fo­cus on eq­ui­table re­source al­lo­ca­tion.

Your bril­liant team of ded­i­cated work­ers who pro­vide sta­tis­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion re­lat­ing to the gen­eral ac­tiv­i­ties and con­di­tions of the peo­ple of Ja­maica and all as­pects of our econ­omy must be com­mended. Your work in pro­vid­ing valu­able sta­tis­tics to guide plan­ning, pol­icy, and distri­bu­tion of re­sources is critical as we con­tinue to se­cure a bet­ter fu­ture for all our cit­i­zens.

You must also be com­mended for cap­i­tal­is­ing on the use of new tech­nolo­gies to im­prove the qual­ity of ser­vice pro­vided to lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional clients. You are un­doubt­edly on your way to ful­fill­ing your vi­sion.

Happy 70th an­niver­sary! We wish for you ev­ery suc­cess as you con­tinue
