In recent years, notable progress has been made towards ownership and sustainability at INSTAT. With the support of Swedish cooperation project, we have moved forward to a more structured organization which produces timelines and reliable data for users. INSTAT has shown deep commitment and dedication to become more open to the public, with increasing the data availability at the micro-level and also the number of publications. We believe that statistics is the tool for a better and informative decision making. With better data, policy makers will be able to build policies for foster economic growth and increase the standard of living.

But to achieve this goal, INSTAT will need the commitment from other governmental institutions, NGO's, corporations, donors and academics. The main challenge in the years ahead will therefore be to transform statistics into knowledge and decisions to a greater extent than before.
