In order to widen its consultations process, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) now opens an online discussion forum on the Philippine Statistical Development Program (PSDP) 2018-2023.
The online forum aims to solicit comments/recommendations from stakeholders on the issues/challenges and proposed statistical development programs in the PSDP for the period 2018-2023. Likewise, this will serve as venue where everyone can provide additional inputs towards the improvement of the Philippine Statistical System (PSS) and enhancement of the importance and relevance of statistics to development planning.
The PSDP is a mechanism for setting the directions, thrusts and strategies in the PSS and for defining the priority statistical development programs and activities for 2018-2023. These statistical programs and activities are designed to provide vital information support to the Philippine Development Plan and the Sustainable Development Goals.
Interested participants may register and join the discussion at http://psdp2018-2023.proboards.com/. The Online Discussion Forum will run from 27 March to 11 April 2018.
For further information, please contact the PSDP Secretariat thru Ms. Lotis I. Ira and Ms. Rubelyn Q. Atienza with telephone number (02) 376-1928 and email addresses firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, respectively.
