MESSAGE FROM THE IAOS PRESIDENT
IAOS is an international non-governmental organisation, which was created and developed as a specialised section of the International Statistical Institute (ISI). Its objectives are to promote the understanding and advancement of official statistics and to foster the development of effective and efficient official statistical services on a global basis. IAOS organises biennial conferences where the last one was held in 2014 in Da Nang Vietnam.
The next IAOS conference will be held in Abu Dhabi in December 2016. The IAOS 2016 conference gives us an opportunity to speak loud about priorities in official statistics, share successes, and discuss the challenges of keeping pace with evolving needs.
How we collectively respond to these and other challenges plays a crucial role in shaping trust in official statistics. We strongly believe that IAOS 2016 will create an optimum environment for an exciting communication of new ideas and knowledge on official statistics.
Your participation will make IAOS 2016 more special and we expect to see you all in the beautiful city of Abu Dhabi.
International Association for Official Statistics
