Trans­par­ent Sta­tis­tics

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - BUSINESS -

In ad­di­tion, the head of state noted, the mech­a­nisms of in­form­ing the broad cir­cles of the for­eign busi­ness com­mu­nity and the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity about the re­sults of the eco­nomic re­forms car­ried out in the repub­lic through the pub­li­ca­tion of sta­tis­ti­cal data in in­ter­na­tional sta­tis­ti­cal publi­ca­tions are poorly used.

Uzbek­istan in­tends to com­plete all work on en­ter­ing the ex­panded Gen­eral Data Dis­sem­i­na­tion Sys­tem (E-GDDS) of the In­ter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund by the end of next year.

This will al­low the repub­lic to pro­vide for­eign in­vestors, lead­ing for­eign com­pa­nies and in­ter­na­tional fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tions with full ac­cess to var­i­ous eco­nomic data in the for­mat in which they are ac­cus­tomed, and will pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to stim­u­late an in­crease in the vol­ume of at­tracted for­eign in­vest­ment.

- In Jan­uary-Fe­bru­ary next year, an IMF mis­sion ar­rives for tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance. Un­til the end of 2018, we in­tend to com­plete all work on join­ing the Gen­eral Data Dis­sem­i­na­tion Sys­tem, - said First Deputy Chair­man of the State Sta­tis­tics Com­mit­tee Ba­hodir Mirus­manov.

To­day, the IMF Sta­tis­tics De­part­ment is one of the key play­ers in the in­ter­na­tional sta­tis­ti­cal co­op­er­a­tion. The fund's in­ter­est in sta­tis­tics is pri­mar­ily the na­tional ac­counts, the bal­ance of pay­ments, and fi­nan­cial data.

The In­ter­na­tional Mon­e­tary Fund an­nu­ally pub­lishes a wide range of data on loans, ex­change rates, as well as eco­nomic and fi­nan­cial sta­tis­tics and on Uzbek­istan's join­ing the E-GDDS.

It should be re­minded that in early Au­gust, the Pres­i­dent of Uzbek­istan se­ri­ously crit­i­cized the sta­tis­tics bod­ies. For ex­am­ple, ac­cord­ing to Shavkat Mirziy­oyev, the work on en­sur­ing the com­plete­ness and re­li­a­bil­ity of the re­port­ing data at an ap­pro­pri­ate level is not or­ga­nized at an ap­pro­pri­ate level, which makes it pos­si­ble to ob­jec­tively as­sess the level of devel­op­ment of in­dus­tries and spheres of the econ­omy of the repub­lic and re­gions.
