Roster of Leading Regional Statisticians/Economists/Institutions

I.        

Regional universities and research institutions are important in facilitating economic development of ECO Member Countries. They help strengthen economies to counter the impact of global turbulences connected to systemic disruptions of financial markets. To that effect, they facilitate creation of a healthy and competitive regional environment. Dynamics of research and technological knowledge-sharing innovations in advanced countries were instrumental in breakthrough of regional countries toward a more accelerated economic development. The level of higher education, which is yet to be enhanced and moderate technological base in ECO region, necessitates sharing the resources and knowledge-based experience across the region.

Establishment of technical cooperation among universities of member countries and involvement of high profile academicia for this matter, would enable a fast and effective attainment of above objectives.

 

Against this backdrop, ECO has embarked on the task of compiling a Directory of Leading Economic Research Institutions/Universities in the ECO Member Countries. In fact, by enriching its database in the field of technical cooperation, the Secretariat pursues facilitation of interaction among universities in member countries. In addition to its value as a substantial reference source, the Directory will serve a basis for initiation of further research and studies.

 

In compiling the Directory, the Secretariat resorted to numerous sources, with a view to covering as much universities in member countries as possible. Utmost care was taken to obtain detailed and up-to-date information on universities and research centers.

To ensure accuracy and reliability of the information obtained, the blueprint of each national list was sent to concerned member countries through their embassies in Tehran, for any comments or changes. All responses received were reflected in this final reference document. We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks and gratitude to those member countries which, through their prompt replies, helped us update information.

 

The Directory is open for any suggestions to enrich and update its content.
