All decision-making strategies and policies are developed and substantiated based on statistical data analyses, and measuring the results of their implementation at the macroeconomic level cannot be done without using the set of indicators produced by official statistics and all this can only be achieved with the help of the most important resources of the institution, namely the human resource”, said the trade unionists.
