Vietnam attends global auditors congress in China

(VOV) - State Audit General Nguyen Huu Van is joining approximately 700 foreign delegates at the 21stcongress of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) being held in Beijing from October 22-25.

Plenary sessions and workshops will focus on the two themes: national audit and national governance, and the role of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) in safeguarding long-term sustainability of finance policies.

Established in 1953, INTOSAI gathers supreme audit institutions of UN member states. Currently the organisation has 191 official and 4 alternate members. Its congress takes place every three years.

Since being admitted to INTOSAI in July 1996, the State Audit of Vietnam has actively accelerated international integration, expanded relations, and signed cooperation agreements with dozens of SAIs and relevant organisations across the globe.
