The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs finances the project titled “Support to Vietnam’s ongoing efforts to improve the quality of official statistics”. It will play an important role in the process towards informed decision-making in Vietnam and support at least four areas:
- Modernizing the data collection methods for population and migration statistics
- Developing education statistics with the ambition that specific education sectors will have an informed platform, on which to base daily operations and future developments
- Introducing Big Data as a new data source in Vietnam
- Developing environmental-economic accounts to report on the environmental-related SDGs
At the ceremony, Birgitte Anker among others said: “We continue to be impressed by the remarkable work from our Vietnamese counterparts. We hope that the cooperation will create more knowledge on the Vietnamese society for evidence-based decision-making and support international agendas like the SDGs“.
Apart from Birgitte Anker, the signing ceremony was represented by the Director General at the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, Ms. Nguyen Thi Huong, and the Danish Ambassador to Vietnam, Kim Højlund Christensen.
We look forward to continue the fruitful collaboration!
