Afghanistan to create a new economic data collection system

The Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) is working together with the Central Statistics Office (CSO) on the creation of a new economic data collection system.

The purpose of the system is to provide a more accurate data needed for the government to plan and evaluate economic development projects.

The data will come from various institutions such as trade, finance, agriculture and ACCI, on quarterly basis and will be reviewed for accuracy.

ACCI Board of Directors Chair, Atiquallah Nasrat, said the system would promote cooperation and collaboration between the different sectors of Afghanistan.

“Statistics in Afghanistan are given without prior cooperation among the institutions, as a result of which, there is a high discrepancy in the figures from the different institution,” said Nasrat.

The Afghan Industries Association (AIA) have welcomed the system and have promised to cooperation with the concerned institutions in providing accurate numbers.
