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

March 20, 2020

Washington, DC Tajikistan 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 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 hosted by the Statistics Agency under the Office of the
President of the Republic of Tajikistan (TAJSTAT) utilizing the Statistical
Data and Metadata Exchange and is accessible on the IMF’s

Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board
. The NSDP page contains links to statistics published by official data
producers, namely TAJSTAT, the Ministry of Finance, and the National Bank
of Tajikistan.

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
that the IMF’s Executive Board has identified as critical for monitoring
economic conditions and policies. Making this information easily accessible
in both human and machine-readable formats will allow all users to have
simultaneous access to timely data and will bring greater data

statistical system.”
