The Korean national statistical system (NSS), led and coordinated by Statistics Korea (KOSTAT), demonstrates strengths from which other countries can learn. Its core strategies include determining the needs of various users by reinforcing the infrastructure for customer relationship management to provide customized services, as well as building and strengthening interactive communication channels to diversify the dissemination of statistical data. This has resulted in a decentralized form of data production that is standardized and coordinated at the same time, which fits the different needs of diverse users. Korea’s NSS shows a high level of integrated use of information technology that facilitates modern statistical production, dissemination and use, including the production of administrative registry-based statistics, an Internet-based population census and the management of a one-stop web-based statistical database. In view of the above, the objective of this regional seminar is to identify areas for future collaboration between the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Republic of Korea in relation to the strengthening the NSS of LAC. High-level policy makers, who are users of statistics in the public sector, as well as national statistics officials representing producers of statistics from LAC are invited to learn about the Korean experience in the area of statistical development.
