The Forum of Euro-Mediterranean Statisticians is a high level decision-making body whose role is to steer cooperation in the field of statistics between the EU and the National Statistical Systems of the ENP-South countries.

The overall mandate of the Forum of Euro-Mediterranean statisticians is to:

  • Steer the Euro-Mediterranean regional cooperation partnership in statistics;
  • Support the ENP-South countries in strengthening the capacity of their National Statistical Systems (NSS) to produce, analyse and disseminate harmonized statistics;
  • Improve the quality of statistics in the region;
  • Promote the use of statistics for evidence-based decision making;
  • Identify emerging statistical issues in the region;
  • Ensure coordination with regional and international organisations active in the region.

 

The Forum is co-chaired by Eurostat and one of the ENP-South NSIs. The permanent members of the Forum are: the Directors of the NSIs of the 9 ENP-South countries, or their nominated delegate; representatives from the European Commission (Eurostat and DG NEAR).
