International Aid

Sunday 16 January 2005 was identified as a 'National Day of Mourning and Reflection' for the victims of the devastating earthquakes and tsunamis in South and South East Asia on 26 December 2004.

The ABS has supplied equipment to the National Statistical Organisation of Indonesia (BPS) to support their rebuilding of the offices destroyed in the tsunami.

This equipment was quickly made available to BPS, as the regional statistical offices were heavily involved in providing information essential for the recovery process.
