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

December 19, 2019

Guyana has implemented the recommendations of the IMF’s Enhanced General
Data Dissemination System (e-GDDS) by publishing essential data through the
National Summary Data Page (NSDP). The e-GDDS was established by the IMF in
2015 to support improved data transparency, encourage statistical
development, and help create synergies between data dissemination and
surveillance. The NSDP is a national “data portal” that serves as a
one-stop publication vehicle for essential macroeconomic data on the
national accounts, government operations and debt, monetary and financial
sector, and balance of payments.

The NSDP is hosted by the Guyana Bureau of Statistics, utilizing the
Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange. A link to Guyana’s NSDP is available on
the IMF’s Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board. The NSDP contains links
to statistics published by the Guyana Bureau of Statistics, the Central
Bank and the Ministry of Finance.

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 Guyana will benefit
from using the e-GDDS as a framework for further development of its
statistical system.”
