Cepei celebrated World Statistics Day

On October 19, the third version of World Statistics Day was celebrated under the theme "Connecting the world with data we can trust". Different experts on the subject were invited to discuss the importance of data and its impact on sustainable development, decision-making and innovation. During this date, the United Nations Statistical Commission seeks to highlight the efforts of international organizations that work in the collection and analysis of evidence-based information that plays a key role in amplifying campaigns at the global and regional level.
