Vietnam-Japan audit cooperation praised

VOV.VN - National Assembly (NA) Vice Chairman Phung Quoc Hien hailed the cooperation between the State Audit of Vietnam (SAV) and the Board of Audit of Japan while receiving a delegation of the Japanese board on July 24 in Hanoi.

Hien told his guest that National Assembly leaders of Vietnam are ready to offer conditions for the SDV to perform its duties.

The SAV founded by the NA of Vietnam, operates independently and in line with law. It audits the management and use of public finance and assets, helping to ensure the transparency of the State’s financial activities and prevent corruption, he said.

He asked the two audit agencies to bolster affiliation in auditing joint projects of Vietnam and Japan and strengthen their ties within bilateral and multilateral frameworks.

The NA Vice Chairman expressed his hope for more support from the Board of Audit to help the SAV become involved in training activities of the Japanese side and the Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI), and fulfill its role as a member of the ASOSAI Governing Board for 2015-2024 and the ASOSAI Chairman for 2018-2021.

President of Japan’s Board of Audit Teruhiko Kawato, in turn said he believes the cooperation between the two countries, as well as between the SAV and his board, will grow further, thus strengthening the friendship and deepening understanding between the Vietnamese and Japanese people.
