SESRIC and Bureau of Statistics of Guyana signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between both institutions within the framework of the project titled “Integration of the Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS) into the National Surveys in Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member Countries”. The MoA was signed on 11 April 2022 by HE. Mr. Nebil DABUR, Director General of SESRIC, and HE. Mr. Errol LaCRUEZ, Chief Statistician of Bureau of Statistics of Guyana.
During the implementation period, Bureau of Statistics of Guyana will integrate the TQS into its Guyana Labour Force Survey (GLFS) with a view to harmonize and standardize the monitoring of key tobacco control indicators for evidence-based policy making and promote sustainability through frequent collection of the tobacco use data.
