Statistics New Zealand Helpdesk
The New Zealand Aid Programme provides support to Statistics New Zealand for a helpdesk to assist several Pacific countries to use software to monitor trade statistics. The aim of the programme is to build statistical capability in Pacific Island Countries through provision of a software system that processes foreign trade statistics simply, effectively and at minimal cost. Provision of these trade statistics assists greatly in the formulation of import duty legislation as well as providing valuable input into National Accounts statistics. These statistics are also essential for measuring and reporting on PIC economic development.
