He hoped to learn more about China’s useful experience in e-commerce statistics, online retailing statistics, big data statistics applications, and other aspects through exchanges, thus improving and perfecting Kyrgyzstan’s statistical work. Moreover, he hoped to explore areas of mutual interest, strengthen the exchange of experience, deepen practical cooperation, and address common challenges.
