Hanoi (VNA) – The General Statistics Office (GSO) will continue improving the quality of its statistics and increasing information sharing with ministries and sectors, thus better serving the Government’s management over the macro-economy and socio-economic development, GSO General Director Nguyen Bich Lam said.

Accordingly, the sector will focus on better performance in analysing and forecasting socio-economic situation, while proposing timely solutions to deal with changes in the global market, especially the financial, monetary and trading market, Lam said at a working session of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc with the Ministry of Planning and Investment in Hanoi on February 19.

In order to serve the economic restructuring and the reform of growth model in the 2016-2020 period, the GSO built a supervision and evaluation criteria framework for the period, Lam said, adding the GSP has piloted the implementation of the process of economic restructuring and growth model reform in the 2016-2018 period.

He noted that along with launching major projects in improving statistics quality, strengthening IT application and development, and international integration, in 2017, 2018 and early 2019, the GSO has built growth scenarios for each quarter of the years as well as solutions for each period.

At the same time, the sector has coordinated with ministries and sectors to give advice to the Minister of Planning and Investment and the Government in price management.

Lam said that in the future, the sector will continue promoting the implementation of the Statistics Law and the Vietnam statistics development strategy in the 2011-2020 period and other major projects, focusing on improving its operation and completing its organisation for better efficiency.-VNA
