At the end of the workshop, attendees reiterated the need to provide quarterly and annual financial data and job classification data from all entities on time, as well as the need to update data coverage lists periodically. The attendees also stressed on the importance of continuous coordination with the relevant entities to meet all local and international data requirements, and directing specialists to cooperate and update the electronic link.
