This all day event took place in London on Tuesday 24 September 2013 and featured a range of talks from users, producers and suppliers of trade and investment statistics.

Take a look at the summary of the day.

The objectives of the event were to:

  • share what we know about trade and investment activity of UK businesses;

  • raise awareness of the importance and coverage of these statistics;

  • hear from users about the range of uses to which our statistics are put and discuss future plans and priorities;

  • share what we learned about users from the first user event and changes made as a result.

Feedback was collected from delegates during interactive sessions to determine future plans and priorities for trade and investment statistics. One of the key findings from the day focused on the accessibility of data, with particular reference to the timeliness of data delivery to the Virtual Microdata Lab and Secure Data Service which will be investigated further.
