The Regional Programme on Economic Statistics for the Improvement of Economic Statistics in Asia and the Pacific and a Core Set of Economic Statistics were endorsed by the Committee on Statistics at its second session in December 2010. In 2012, the third session of the Committee on Statistics approved the Implementation plan for the Regional Programme for the Improvement of Economic Statistics in Asia and the Pacific.

The Programme is designed to improve soundness of economic analysis and related decision making through increased availability and effective use of timely, reliable and comparable economic statistics. It aims to increase capacity of national statistical systems in Asia and the Pacific to produce and disseminate, in line with the international standards, the Core Set of Economic Statistics by 2020.

The regional coordination of the Programme is led by the Steering Group comprising member countries (NSO, Central Bank and Ministry of Finance representatives), development partners and ESCAP Statistics Division as the secretariat.
