African Statistics Day (ASD) 2023

Today is 18th November and the National Statistical Office joins the rest of Africa in commemorating the African Statistics Day (ASD)

This year’s ASD is being celebrated under the theme “Modernizing data ecosystems to accelerate the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA): the role of official statistics and Big Data in the economic transformation and sustainable development of Africa”.

The theme aligns with the African Union theme of the year 2023, “Acceleration of the AfCFTA Implementation”, and encapsulates the call to modernize data systems on the continent to produce and use high-quality official statistics and seize the opportunities that big data presents.

The theme for African Statistics Day in 2023 was chosen to raise awareness among decision makers, technical and financial partners, data producers and users, researchers and the public of the importance of official statistics and big data to accelerate the implementation of the Agreement Establishing the African Continental Free Trade Area and promote intracontinental trade.

Events marking this year’s ASD of this years celebration celebrations will take place today at Sunbird Mzuzu Hotel.

Let us all join the Commissioner of Statistics and the entire National Statistical System in commemorating this DAY!
