The regional workshop of ASEAN Member States (AMS), held on 23 and 24 August 2016 in the ASEAN Secretariat Jakarta, discussed the implementation of policies and guidelines on data sharing, confidentiality, and dissemination of ASEAN statistics. Participants shared with each other the implementation practices within their respective countries concerning issues like data exchanges between governmental organizations, non-disclosure of individual (or individual derivable) outcomes, corrections on published statistics, pricing of publications, and submission of regional outcomes to international organizations. The group formulated a comprehensive set of jointly agreed recommendations, applicable at the national and regional level, for the ASEAN Community Statistical System (ACSS), to be submitted for discussion and endorsement by the ACSS Committee in November 2016.
