**Abstract:** In the present paper, we generalize the notion of statistical structure and its dual connection in Riemannian geometry to Finsler geometry. We shall show that the Berwald connection D of a Finsler manifold is a statistical structure. In particular, as an application of this fact, we shall show that, if the hh-curvature of the Berwald connection D vanishes identically, then the given Finsler metric induces a Hessian metric on the base manifold.

**Keywords:** Finsler connections, dual connections

**Classification (MSC2000):** 53B40
