ISI Outreach Committees
Outreach Committees develop activities, networks and promote and represent the ISI and its Associations in different regions.

An Outreach Committee is established by the Council in accordance with ISI Statutes & By-Laws. Chairs of Outreach Committees must be ISI members, and members of Outreach Committees must be members of the ISI and/or its Associations. The chair as well as the committee members are appointed by the ISI Executive Committee. The members of the Committee are appointed in consultation with the chair.

Each Outreach Committee establishes, maintains and promotes an associated ISI Regional Network in their region.
Current Committees:

• Central Eurasia Outreach Committee
• East Asian Outreach Committee
• South East Asia Outreach Committee
» East Asian Outreach Committee
The International Statistical Institute Southeast Asia (ISI SEA) is one of outreach committee's ISI.

The countries in the Network are Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. This region represents about 9% of the world’s population. These countries are not only in different stages of economic development, they are also in different stages of development in the field of statistics.

Through the outreach committee, the different countries can come together to support the growth of statistical activities in the region.

Some statistical networks from Indonesia (FORSTAT), Malaysia (ISM), Singapore (SIS), Philippine (PSAI) participated too. The statistical community of the East Asian region remained active in 2022 during the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect to see more face-to-face exchange opportunities and conferences in 2023.
