Mozambique implements IMF’s enhanced general data dissemination system

mozambique GDDSMozambique has implemented the recommendations of the IMF’s enhanced general data dissemination system (e-GDDS) by publishing critical data through the National Summary Data Page (NSDP)

The page aims to serve as a one-stop publication vehicle for essential macroeconomic data on the national accounts, government operations and debt, monetary and financial sector and the balance of payments.

The e-GDDS was established by the IMF’s Executive Board in May 2015 to support improved data transparency, encourage statistical development, and help create synergies between data dissemination and policymaking.

The page is hosted by the National Institute of Statistics, utilising the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange, and is accessible on the IMF’s Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board. The page contains links to statistics published by official data producers, namely the National Institute of Statistics, the Bank of Mozambique and the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

Publication of essential macroeconomic data through the page will provide national policymakers and domestic and international stakeholders including investors and rating agencies, with easy access to information critical for monitoring economic conditions and policies.

Louis Marc Ducharme, chief statistician and data officer and director of the IMF’s Statistics Department, said, “I am confident that Mozambique will benefit from using the e-GDDS as a framework for further development of its statistical system.”

Mozambique has benefitted from a project on the Improvement of Data Dissemination financed by the UK Department for International Development.
