The Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Authority joins the Community

September 12, 2019



The Community is very pleased to welcome the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Authority (FCSA) as the newest member, bringing the total membership to 15.



Over the last few months FCSA have been exploring options to move from a excel publication of data tables to a dynamic standards based approach, having now settled on the .Stat Suite that will underpin their data dissemination infrastructure.


The Community will work closely with FCSA to support them in capacity building and training in SDMX data modelling, with the implementation of the .Stat Suite for an initial internal sharing of data before the end of 2019.

The Community looks forward to a fruitful collaboration with FCSA for the years to come.
