NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 2/03/2017

New Zealand and the Netherlands have signed an agreement to work together on developing ways to gather and use data.

Statistics Minister Mark Mitchell says agencies in both countries are among the most modern and innovative in the world.

"This agreement will help ensure New Zealanders are getting the best possible value from data," he said.

"The collaboration is not about sharing data, it is about improving methodologies and tools that help maximise the value of the statistics we produce."

Statistics agencies in New Zealand and the Netherlands will share people through staff exchanges, and experts from business, science and education providers will be involved.
