    The National Statistical Organizations (NSO) throughout the world have been facing many new challenges in recent years. As will be discussed in this session, declining response rates, the proliferation of alternative data sources, increased scrutiny on privacy and the growth of statistics produced by private organizations is forcing NSOs to rethink and transform their business.
    The session will hear from three prominent speakers from three different NSOs on how they respond to these major challenges. We will feature Dr. Konrad Pesendorfer, Chief Statistician, General Authority for Saudi Arabia, Mr. Padraig Dalton, Director General of Central Statistics Office, Ireland and Dr. Wesley Yung, Acting Director General of Modern Statistical Methods and Data Science Branch, Statistics Canada. This session will be chaired by Mr. Anil Arora, Chief Statistician of Canada.
