The FINANCIAL — Staff of the Armenian National Statistical Service visited Denmark in April to learn about the country’s experience relating to statistics on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The visit was organised by the “Support to SME Development in Armenia” (SMEDA) project, which is implemented within the EU4Business initiative. It follows four expert missions on SME statistics organised by EU-SMEDA, aiming at enhancing the capacities of the country’s National Statistical Service.
The visiting Armenian statisticians were also introduced to the experience and practice of the Danish Statistical Service in the collection, compilation and publication of SME statistics according to EUROSTAT and OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) standards, according to the EU Neighbours portal.
Building on the four expert missions, the study tour enabled the Armenian National Statistical Service to get the necessary up-to-date know-how and methods, enabling them to produce and publish high-quality and accurate SME statistics with various sub-sectoral analyses to be widely used by stakeholders and SMEs in Armenia.
