SME Statistics to be improved and harmonised

With an objective to improve and harmonise SME statistics in Armenia with international and EU standards, and upscale capacities of the National Statistical Service of the Republic Armenia (NSSRA) in that regard, SMEDA has supported two missions with Lithuanian and Danish experts who have worked with the respective  NSSRA staff to reveal where the agency stands on 1) SME statistics and estimation of GDP or GVA by size; and 2) statistics on structural business and indicators on sole proprietorships.  The experts, presented the Lithuanian and Danish experience and methodologies to collect and analyse the stated statistics and relevant  indicators and discussed ways, data sources and options with local experts to estimate the mentioned statistics by NSSRA. The gathered information and findings  will be analysed by the experts, who will produce reports with proposed actions, criteria and recommendations for the NSSRA as a result of these two missions.  

The improvement of SME statistics is one  of the key activities of SMEDA for 2018 and follow up missions and studies are envisaged further on, rounding up to a more accurate information on SMEs, increased number of SME indicators and general awareness about the state of the SME sector and its contribution in the Armenian economy.
