Western Visayas Statistical Info Centers On "Open House" PDF Print E-mail
National Statistical Coordination Board 6 Regional Head Presentacion Penpillo said the NSIC is a one-stop shop for statistical information and data needed by local executives, investors, businessmen, researchers, student, government employees, planners and decision-makers.

Other services and facilities available in the center are statistics inquiry, library, technical services and internet.

Penpillo said the project is jointly implemented in the country with the Swedish International Development Agency in cooperation with other government agencies.

In Western Visayas, the NSIC is located at the NSCB Regional Office in Lapaz, Iloilo City. However, there are also satellite provincial NSICs in Guimaras, Negros Occidental, Antique and Capiz. The 5th satellite NSIC in the region in the province of Aklan will hold a soft opening during the celebration.

In his message during the opening ceremony of the NSM celebration in Iloilo City, NSCB Secretary General Romulo Virola lauded Western Visayas for being the first region to have satellite NSICs in all its provinces.

Virola said this is a clear proof of the region's high statistical appreciation as well as strong commitment to empower users and stakeholders of statistics.

As part of the month-long celebration, a statistical exhibit participated in by some 21 government agencies and institutions is being held at the Amigo Plaza Mall until October 20. (PIA/LAFrench)
