AMMONNEWS - Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, Dr. Wissam Rabadi, launched the Sustainable Development Indicators (SDI) platform on the Department of Statistics' (DoS) website.

In a statement issued on Saturday, the ministry said the platform includes 110 indicators at the national and international levels, allowing users to access the required ones easily, in addition to the economic indicators base which covers 13 economic and social sectors.

During the launching ceremony, the minister stressed the need to intensify efforts to raise awareness of the importance of the sustainable development goals, and the future plans to achieve the sustainable development goals by integrating them into sectoral and institutional plans, programs and strategies.

Rabadi praised the "distinguished" level achieved by DoS during the past years, stressing the importance of developing the national statistical work and enhancing confidence in this regard to provide the necessary statistical data to take sound decisions based on updated data.

On the DoS's role, he lauded its efforts to keep pace with developments and its integration and implementation of modern technologies to serve Jordanian statistical operations, adding the department's adoption of the National Statistics Strategy for 2018-2022 exemplifies its "clear" vision.

The minister stressed the need to continue supporting the DoS's independence to enable it "fully" perform its duties and to preserve its entrepreneurial role it has achieved, and to maintain contact with the "sectoral" ministries and the media and build their capabilities in the census field.
