Nowshahr (CBI PR dept) - The law of permanent principles of development plans for the 11th administration assigns the task of provision and publication of specialized figures to the central bank. On this basis, the statistics released by the central bank are the sole official figures of the country.
in the opening ceremony of the 39th training seminar on economic statistics, Dr. Ghorbani, the vice governor for economic affairs referred to the undesirable economic conditions of the country at the beginning of 11th administration including negative growth and investment rates as well as instability of the markets particularly the FX market and added, "Those conditions brought inconvenience and discomfort to the public, investors and the whole economy".
Referring to the single-digit inflation rate after 26 years of high inflation, Peyman Ghorbani said, "The double digit economic growth rate was another achievement made along with the single digit inflation. Besides, markets experienced an unprecedented stability despite a sharp drop in oil prices. At the same time, we witnessed the growth of investment in machinery which promises new movements in industry".
"The central bank has played a major role in this regard", he went on to say, "the most important task now is to preserve and safeguard the economic achievements. This requires high-quality accurate and timely statistics".
"Economic figures used to suffer from delay", he said, "However, the 11th administration followed a disciplined way to improve timeliness. The statistics offices are equipped with modern software and hardware which contribute to better data collection and analysis".
"The publication of the calendar for inflation rate, national accounts and production indices of large industrial workshops received warm welcome both domestically and internationally. We anticipate that the timetable for other figures will be available soon", he concluded.
