support of the *IOM *and the *European Union in Ecuador*, organised the
**workshop "Migration Statistics in Ecuador: Reality, potential and

*international experts* Gladys Massé (Argentina) and William Mejia
(Colombia), together with delegates of IOM, who provided new information and
shared regional experiences.
The workshop "Migration Statistics in Ecuador: Reality, potential and

*based on the experiences and work that Ecuador has been developing in
*migration statistics*. Thus, this activity aimed to review the
*achievements, weaknesses and challenges *in order to *strengthen national
data collection, processing and exchange of statistical information*.
The INEC, as the ruling body of official statistics in the country, along
with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Interior sought to
highlight these efforts and emphasize the *importance of migration statistics
of quality for the development of public policies*.
During the workshop, the Commission on Migration Statistics – comprising
the ministries directly related with the issue, such as the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility, the Ministry of Interior, the
Coordinating Ministry of Social Development, and under the leadership of INEC
– met to develop a *Work Plan to improve the quality of migration
statistics* for the next two years, in which a plan of action was defined,
including products and timelines.
The event not only facilitated an exchange between different providers of
migration statistics and provided for the drafting of a plan of action and a
road map for the Commission on Migration Statistics, but also *strengthened
relationships for future cooperation* with the INEC and, building on the
debates and discussions, paved the way for greater cooperation, harmony and
security with respect to the quality of migration statistics.
