As we approach the holiday season and another year draws to a close, I have been reflecting on the past year and the fantastic connections we have all made. One of the highlights of the year was hosting the Commonwealth Heads of Statistics Conference and meeting so many colleagues from across the Commonwealth. The Conference was a wonderful opportunity to explore and discuss the important common challenges and opportunities across the ever changing global statistical landscape that we all face and I look forward to continuing this journey with you, and Commonwealth colleagues who could not make the Conference, in the future through synergies, collaboration and innovation.
The CHoSC18 team are working to finalise both the conference report and the Communique and we hope to share these with you in mid-January, they are also looking at the possibility of arranging a meeting next year in the margins of the ISI in Malaysia and we hope to have some exciting news about that soon
I hope you all enjoy the festive period and the coming New Year.
