The seminar included representatives of the Andean Community (CAN) member countries (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru) as well as invited countries Paraguay and the Dominican Republic. The workshop was co-organised with the CAN Secretariat and hosted by DANE, the Colombian NSO. ECLAC also participated in the workshop. The workshop allowed countries to gather experience from other regions in particular the EU.
