Specialists from Cuba's National Office of Statistics (ONEI) visit their Peruvian counterparts to learn about their experience in developing economic surveys
FIIAPP has organised an experience exchange activity between Cuban and Peruvian experts. The Cuban delegation, made up of experts and specialists from the country’s National Statistics and Information Office (ONEI), visited the National Institute of Statistics and Information (INEI) in order to learn about the Peruvian experience in the development and implementation of economic surveys as well as in the creation of a directory of companies and establishments.
“This experience exchange no doubt will benefit both representations, because it will enable us to improve our processes and ultimately to offer quality statistical information, which will facilitate decision-making by our authorities”, stressed the Peruvian INEI, Dr Aníbal Sánchez Aguilar, at the close of the welcome event for the Cuban representation.
This activity is part of the second phase of the project funded by the European Commission and managed by FIIAPP, “EU-Cuba Expertise Exchange Programme”. In this second phase, Cuba will not only work with European countries but also has included activities like this one, in which Cuban experts will have the chance to learn about how other countries on the American continent work.
During its visit, the ONEI Cuba delegation met with employees and the technical team of the Executive Directorate of Censuses and Surveys of Companies and Establishments of the INEI’s National Directorate of Censuses and Surveys to share experiences and exchange knowledge about the register of companies and establishments, planning of company surveys, sample design, the online form used for the Annual Economic Survey (EEA), the process of ensuring consistency, in the context of economic surveys and registers of companies and establishments.
Likewise, aspects related to specialised economic surveys and results-based budgeting, the national agriculture survey (ENA) and new economic research aimed at collecting economic-financial information about the country were addressed.
