Statistics Korea and the General Authority for Statistics held a conference regarding statistical cooperation on July 15 by video.

During a video conference with Dr. Akram Nour (Vice President for Statistic Work), Kim Kwang-sup (Vice Commissioner of Statistics Korea) introduced special surveys on the prices of masks and hand sanitizers, and provided analysis of population migration before and after COVID-19.
He also explained how non-face-to-face statistical surveys are conducted via PCs and mobile devices.
Statistics Korea has decided to actively share Korea's experience with Saudi Arabia by sending experts to Saudi Arabia if necessary in relation to the Population Census.
