The Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC) and National Institute of Statistics of the Republic of Cameroon have signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between both institutions within the framework of the project titled “Integration of the ‘Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS)’ into the National Surveys in Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member States”. The MoA was signed on 06 March 2015 by Prof. Savaş Alpay, Director General of SESRIC, and Mr. Joseph Tedou, Director General of National Institute of Statistics of the Republic of Cameroon.
