Due to the urgent need to develop the capacities of Arab countries in statistical business registers (SBRs), which are becoming the backbone infrastructure to produce quality, reliable and timely economic and business statistics, ESCWA, UNSD and AITRS organized a regional workshop on SBRs for Arab countries.
 
The workshop, held in Amman from 25 to 27 June, aimed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to deepen their understanding of the principles and methodology of SBRs, and share knowledge with the regional and national statistical authorities on the requirements of establishing and maintaining SBRs, and ways to advance work at the regional level.
