Cape Verde has joined the Enhanced General Data Dissemination System, which harmonises macro-economic data and allows for the development of the statistical system of countries that join up, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) announced in a statement released on Wednesday in Washington.
The statement said that Cabo Verde has launched a National Data Page, as a result of the recommendations Enhanced General Data Dissemination System (e-GDDS), which acts as an “unique vehicle for publication of essential macro-economic data in readable formats that are readable by people and machines.”
It also said the e-GDDS had been approved by the Executive Board of the IMF in May 2015 as a way of supporting the transparency of data, encouraging the development of statistics and help to create synergies between the dissemination of data and surveillance.
Cabo Verde’s data is kept in the “Open Data Platform” of the African Development Bank (ADB) and is accessible from the “Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board” of the International Monetary Fund, containing links to the official producers of statistical data, such as the Central Bank of Cabo Verde, the National Statistics Institute and the Ministry of Finance.
