Madagascar Implements the International Monetary Fund’s Enhanced General Data Dissemination System







May 15, 2019
















Madagascar 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
sectors, and balance of payments. These data will be disseminated in both
human- and machine-readable formats. 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 surveillance.

The NSDP is posted on the webpage for
Madagascar that is hosted on the open-data platform sponsored by the
African Development Bank. A link to
Madagascar’s NSDP is also available on the IMF’s Dissemination Standards
Bulletin Board. The NSDP contains links to statistics published by the
Ministry of Economy and Finance, the National Institute of Statistics, and
the Central Bank of Madagascar.

Publication of essential macroeconomic data through the NSDP will provide
national policy makers and domestic and international stakeholders,
including investors and rating agencies, with easy access to information
critical for monitoring economic conditions and policies. Making this
information easily accessible in both human- and machine-readable formats
will allow users to have simultaneous access to timely data and bring
greater data transparency.

Louis Marc Ducharme, Chief Statistician and Data Officer, and Director of
the IMF’s Statistics Department, welcomed this major milestone in the
country’s statistical development. “I am confident that Madagascar will
benefit from using the e-GDDS as a framework for further development of its
statistical system.”

Madagascar has benefitted from a project on the Improvement of Data
Dissemination financed by the United Kingdom’s Department for International
Development.
