Securing reliable data to monitor development requires "effective, strong, sound" national statistical systems.

That's the view of Lenni Montiel, the new UN Assistant Secretary for Economic Development in the UN Department of Economic and Social Development (DESA).

Mr. Montiel spoke to Helen Rosengren about some of the vital issues in 2015 which is a landmark year for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to improve people's lives.
