Following the evolving and developing situation of COVID-19, which is spreading to most countries including Zambia, the Zambia Statistics Agency with the directive of the Ministry of National Development Planning in consultation with UNECA, the IAOS and ISI has decided to officially postpone the Zambia 2020 IAOS-ISI Conference to a date to be decided. In the meantime, the paper presenters are encouraged to finalise the papers. Any inconvenience caused is deeply regretted.
The extra issue of the Journal, planned on 'Official Statistics for the African region’ will still go ahead. Therefore, authors from the African region are now even more encouraged to contribute to this extra and very special issue of the journal.
