Tunis — Statistical Governance

In November 29, 2019 the International Statistical Institute (ISI), the Irving Fisher Committee of the BIS (IFC), the African Union and Statistique Tunesie organised a conference on Data Governance in Tunis. This gave me the chance to present the core results of a recent discussion paper on statistical governance and foreign direct investment, with a focus on African economies.

Most delegates came from African countries, both North and Sub-Saharan Africa. Discussions were lively, and in the course of the conference I had the chance to learn a lot about the problems of statistical governance in a rather direct way.
