Representing their respective institutions, the Governor of the Bank of Mozambique, Rogério Zandamela, the President of the Tax Authority of Mozambique, Amélia Nakhare, and the President of the National Statistical Institute (INE), Rosário Fernandes, yesterday signed two indefinite cooperation protocols.
These agreements aim at achieving better results regarding the exchange and joint production of statistical information, as well as in the joint conduct of a statistical inquiry into cross-border informal trade.
The tripartite protocol on the joint implementation of a statistical survey on cross-border informal trade calls for joint financing of the organisation, conduct, evaluation and systematisation of information. It also proposes setting up a shared database on cross-border informal trade and holding regular meetings to assess the level of implementation of the protocol.
The protocol on the exchange and joint production of statistical information obliges the parties to collaborate in drawing up a model for the collection of financial information to be applied to companies in the non-financial sector.
Finally, the bipartite protocol between the Bank of Mozambique and the National Statistical Institute advances a reciprocal obligation to exchange statistical information, joint production of official statistical information, training and elaboration of methodologies for statistical production, study and research and broadens the scope of measures already in force.
In signing these two protocols, the three institutions set out guiding principles for better co-ordination on matters of common interest, in anticipation of the positive results hoped for from the implementation of the proposals.Source: ine.gov.mz
