10 Workshops Were Organized by the Authority to Introduce and Raise Awareness of the National Classification of the Economic Activities

 

Bilateral workshops organized by the Authority with the concerned entities are considered a practical step in the process of applying the classification by the concerned entities, as well as to provide the definition and awareness of the National Classification of the Economic Activities.
The Authority has held 10 workshops for the relevant entities during the past period of time and prepared a unified guide and an electronic room for operations and communication in preparation for the start of the adoption of the National Classification for the Economic Activities that can be defined as the way in which counting units can be collected according to a serial order and defined by homogeneous groups with a view to creating a general framework for comparison of statistical data at the local, regional and international levels. The data of the economic activity can be divided according to the guide prepared for this to specific levels in a manner similar to the characteristics of the economic activities classified in one rank.

Objectives: 

Aims to create a general framework for comparing statistical data at the local, regional and international levels, and providing a set of statistical data classified according to the economic activity. In addition, the implementation of the Unified Classification for Economic Activities contributes to the organization and restructuring of all sectors, supports the project of electronic connectivity between different entities, improves the quality of administrative records data of the relevant entities, and provides a comprehensive framework of economic activities to facilitate the handling of descriptive formulas automatically.
