Statistics Korea Commissioner Ryu Keun-kwan attended the Second Ministerial Conference on Civil Registration and Vital Statistics in Asia and the Pacific, the agency said Monday.
Ryu shared his knowledge of Korea’s experience in managing registration data such as births, deaths and marriages, which was welcomed by other countries keen to learn through additional technological assistance, the agency said.
He took part in the conference virtually on the last day of the four-day event held from Nov. 16 to 19 in Bangkok, Thailand, organized by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).
Participants of the conference renewed their commitment to the vision “Get Every One in the Picture” declared at the previous conference in 2014 and ensured that all people in the region will benefit from universal and responsive civil registration and vital statistics by 2024.Internet Explorer Channel Network
