ESCWA, the United Nations Statistics Division and the Arab Institute for Training and Research on Statistics are organizing a regional workshop to help employees of national statistics offices acquire knowledge and skills to deepen their understanding of statistical business registers (SBRs).

The workshop aims to develop the following capacities among the participating countries:

  • Increased knowledge regarding the development, maintenance and use of SBRs, including the global assessment questionnaire, the implementation of the revised classifications in SBRs, the integration of geospatial information, integration of business and trade, and the unique identifiers for businesses.
  • Knowledge on the Maturity Model for SBRs, including the use of the accompanying toolkit to conduct self‐assessments on the status of development of business registers and to identify areas of improvement.
