The event was focused on relationships between the Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic, as a producer of official statistical data, and data users from the academic and scientific community, public administration, finance and insurance, business and media.

According to Ms Mariana Kotzeva, the Deputy Director General of Eurostat, it is now necessary to conduct a permanent and open dialogue with the users of official statistics.
