In the VI CPLP Statistical Conference (Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries), held in Dili from 8 to 10 June 2015, the publication of a bilingual (Portuguese and English) and biennial brochure, entitled “CPLP in Figures”, was unanimously approved, aiming to provide relevant indicators on the Portuguese-speaking countries, allowing thereby to trace their demographic and socio-economic picture.
Statistics Portugal was assigned the task of designing, implementing and coordinating the “CPLP in Figures 2015”, in close cooperation with the statistical authorities of Angola, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, Sao Tome and Principe and Timor-Leste.
“CPLP in Figures 2015” follows on from previous initiatives of similar nature - such as “CPLP Statistics”, published in 2012, 2004 and 1998 -, providing twenty-six indicators on six thematic areas, for the years 2011, 2012 and 2013.
This initiative, in which Statistics Portugal was strongly committed, will certainly contribute to strengthening the ties that bind the CPLP members in the statistical area.
