FCSA are thankful of the efforts of the OECD trainers. 

The training has been a great accomplishment.  David and Anastasia were professional, knowledgeable, and flexible during the five days of training.  We successfully deployed Births, Deaths, and Health statistics datasets to our UAE.Stat environment.  We look forward to more future collaboration opportunities with OECD,
