As mandated by the Economic Policy, Planning and Statistics Office (EPPSO) Act, EPPSO collects and compiles a wide range of economic indicators for informed decision making. Due to a number of factors which are beyond EPPSO's control, access to few key indicators such as International Trade is currently limited.
It is the intension of the EPPSO to ensure a wide range of economic data gets disseminated in this website. Therefore it will continue to collaborate with its key data sources, particularly in the areas of providing advise on improving data capture applications to enhance quality and timely outputs from its data sources, that are currently experiencing problems with their processing systems.
