Dr. Waqar Wadho and Dr. Azam Chaudhry from the Lahore School of Economics and Dr. Matthew McCartney from Oxford University conducted a 2-day workshop on March 22nd and 23rd, 2019 for government officials from Punjab and Sindh. The workshop included officials from the Punjab Bureau of Statistics, the Sindh Bureau of Statistics, students and academics.

The objectives of the workshop were threefold: First, the workshop was an important opportunity for academics and policy makers to share their experiences and develop a deeper understanding about the main challenges involved in undertaking a large survey.

Second, the workshop provided an opportunity for discussions on some of the key issues faced by the designers and implementers of surveys internationally.

Third, the workshop allowed the researchers to introduce policy makers to an innovation survey that will be conducted with textile and apparel manufacturers in Punjab and Sindh and explain how the results of this survey can be analyzed by academics and government officials for use by policymakers.

The workshop included sessions on:

Survey Design and Implementation

China Pakistan Economic Corridor
