State Statistics Committee of Azerbaijan got right to obtain information from physical entities
The Regulation of the State Statistics Committee of Azerbaijan has been approved by the Decree of the AzerbaijanвЂ™s President Ilham Aliyev of 24 November 2005 aimed at improvement of the standard and legal bases of the Azerbaijan State Statistics CommitteeвЂ™s activities. It became effective since 26 November. The Regulation approved by the countryвЂ™s president does not change the status of the State Statistics Committee (SSC) as compared to the Regulations approved earlier by the Cabinet of Ministers, the SSC chairman Arif Veliyev told Trend.
"At the same time the new Regulation expands essentially the powers of SSC in terms of international cooperation- with other states and international institutions. The Regulation assumes application of automated information systems, transfer on international standards of recording and statistics. SSC has got the right to obtain statistical information and reports (statements) from physical entities, which will considerably increase the private sector statistics, including the operating entrepreneurs without establishing the legal entity. SSC has got the right, for the first time, to statistical reports and information. The means will go to the state budgetвЂќ, Veliyev said.
