This will be followed by a discussion of statistical production in Kenya, including production of trade data, non-trade data, and measurement of informal cross-border trade. The day will conclude with the discussion of methodology to be pursued in Kenya and the way forward.

Day 2: Key statistical experts from KNBS will work together with UNECA and UNCTAD experts to review and compile the first experimental set of gender-in-trade statistics using the micro-linking data approach. The workshop will conclude with the review of compiled data and discussion of the way forward.
