Twelfth Management Seminar for the Heads of National Statistical Offices in Asia and the Pacific: Managing Key Stakeholder Relationships
The theme of this year’s Seminar is "Managing Key Stakeholder Relationships". The Seminar is based on the premise that in delivering on their missions, national statistical offices work in partnership and establish relationships with stakeholders that have an interest in and some influence on the national statistical system. The Seminar will ask and aim to answer questions such as: Who are the “key” stakeholders of national statistical offices and what are the relationships that bind them? Are these relationships in good health and what does it take to get to that level and stay there? The Seminar will draw on the experience of participants in exploring what are the elements of an effective “stakeholder engagement strategy”.
