South East Asia Outreach Committee

Objectives and expected products

  • Provide those involved in statistical activities in the region:
    1. a platform to share information and promote Statistics within SE Asia;
    2. a forum to communicate with the global statistical community;
    3. an opportunity to become engaged in the activities of the ISI.
  • Work closely with national statistical organisations to develop regional activities in areas such as developing statistical education, sharing of best statistical practices, and stimulating regional collaborations in research and new developments. Related activities can include organising capacity-building workshops, mentoring, webinars, short courses, etc. The ISI has considerable experience and interest in these activities.
