Pan-African Institute for Statistics to be based in Tunis under headquarters agreement between Tunisia and AU

The Pan-African Institute for Statistics (STATAFRIC) will be seated in Tunis under a headquarters agreement signed between Tunisia and the African Union Sunday in Addis Ababa.

The agreement was signed by Foreign Minister KhemaA�es Jhinaoui and Commissioner of Economic Affairs at the African Union Victor Harison.

According to a statement released Monday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this African body is destined to become the main source of statistical data on the continent.

These data will be used to develop different development strategies in Africa, according to the same source.

Visiting Ethiopia to attend the 30th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union held on January 28 and 29 in Addis Ababa on “overcoming corruption: a sustainable option for transforming Africa,”, the FM welcomed Tunisia’s hosting of this African body.

He affirmed the country’s commitment to meeting the best conditions to enable the institute to fully discharge its mission.

Jhinaoui also expressed the wish to see the signing of this headquarters agreement pave the way for Tunisia to host other African organisations.

The Pan-African Institute for Statistics is the first African body to be seated in Tunisia since the creation of the African Union.
