International Scientific Cooperation
ESTAT-2020-PA8-E-AGRI Modernisation of Agricultural Statistics
KSH is participating in the Eurostat Grant project (ESTAT-2020-PA8-E-AGRI Modernisation of Agricultural Statistics), which aims to measure agricultural policies more efficiently by linking the results of existing administrative databases and statistical data collections, without increasing the burden on respondents.
In the framework of the project, a workshop was organised by the HCSO on 2-3 October 2023, attended by Eurostat and nearly 40 experts from 20 countries (Member States, candidate countries and potential candidate countries). At the workshop, the speakers presented the developments and achievements in agricultural statistics in recent years and provided an opportunity to discuss the presentations.
Statistical cooperation among V4 countries continues
In the framework of the Slovak Presidency of the Visegrad Cooperation, the Presidents of the Hungarian, Czech, Polish and Slovak National Statistical Offices met in Bratislava on 29 November 2022.
The chief statisticians discussed the main statistical challenges in the region, briefly presented the first national results and experiences of the recently completed census.
On the agenda was an update of the work programme for cooperation, in which it was agreed to organise expert-level discussions in the field of consumer price statistics and geostatistics. European and international events will provide an additional opportunity for regular consultations at presidential level between the V4 countries.
The Hungarian Central Statistical Office participates actively in bilateral and multilateral international collaborations and in regional cooperation, promoting exchange of experience, common approaches and last but not least professional knowledge-exchange.
Our role in international support projects goes on usually within the framework of consortiums, we also carry collaborations based on bilateral agreements, furthermore we gladly fulfil one-time expertise requests as well.
The close collaboration with our neighbouring countries is outstanding, within it with the V4 countries –since April 2018 according to a cooperation agreement along common goals – the tangible products of it being the comprehensive publications presenting the four countries.
