PSA Holds 1st Regional User-Producer Dialogue in Legazpi City

The Philippine Statistics Authority conducted the first regional user-producer dialogue on February 13 (Thursday) at the Oriental Hotel in LegazpiCity. The dialogue focused on the role of statistics on inclusive growth and disaster risk management.

The dialogue gathered both the producers and users of statistics at the local level to: (1) determine the data requirements to manage disaster risk and measure the social and economic impacts of disasters; (2) assess the responsiveness of the current statistical system; and (3) formulate recommendations to improve current mechanisms.

NEDA Acting Assistant Regional Director Edna Cynthia Berces was a panelist for session 1 (data requirements to manage disaster risk and measure the social and economic impacts) and session 3 (improving statistics to address the challenges to achieve inclusive growth).
