Montenegro began its participation in the General Data Dissemination System – (GDDS), on December 5, 2011 within IMF.

The General Data Dissemination System is a structured process through which IMF member countries commit voluntarily to improving the quality of the data produced and disseminated by their statistical systems over the long run to meet the needs of high-quality macroeconomic analysis.

The purpose of the GDDS is to guide countries in developing sound statistical systems, with special emphasis on comprehensiveness, reliability and timeliness of data, and the practice of dissemination of economic, financial and socio-demographic data. 


A mission of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)'s Statistics Department visited Montenegro during June 28-July 4, 2017 to collaborate with government authorities to implement the Enhanced General Data Dissemination System (e-GDDS). The e-GDDS was endorsed by the IMF’s Executive Board in May 2015.

The mission is particularly to support the development of the National Summary Data Page (NSDP), which is hosted on the Montenegro Statistical Office website, utilizing the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX), with links to the Central Bank and the Ministry of finance of Montenegro.

The NSDP aims to serve as a one-stop publication vehicle for essential macroeconomic data. Publication of essential macroeconomic data through the new NSDP will provide users with easy access to information that the IMF's Executive Board has identified as critical for monitoring economic conditions and policies. 

The NSDP give users access to full information about the Montenegro e-GDDS data, and it’s available from 4th September 2017 on the Statistical Office website and also on the IMF's Dissemination Standards Bulletin Board (DSBB) at 

The e-GDDS was established by the IMF's Executive Board in May 2015 to support improved data transparency, encourage statistical development, and help create synergies between data dissemination and surveillance. The e-GDDS supersedes the GDDS, which was established in 1997.
