I am pleased and proud to share some of the first outcomes of our work on the finish line to the forthcoming INCOSAI XXIII with all members of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions.
Having processed the feedback from the audit community the Congress themes were finally approved at the 70th INTOSAI Governing Board meeting which was held on November 6-7, 2017.
Theme I. Information technology for the development of public administration.
Theme II. The role of the Supreme Audit Institutions in the achievement of national priorities and goals.
Expert groups in charge of the materials for Theme I and Theme II chaired by SAI of China and SAI of Russia respectively, have prepared drafts of the principal papers which are now available to all INTOSAI members at www.incosai2019.ru
Within the time remaining before the INCOSAI we hope that there will be an opportunity for us to exchange best practices on mutually beneficial basis, let alone we would appreciate your proactive participation and feedback.
It goes without saying that problems raised by the auditing community are of crucial importance. Still we realize the importance of establishing a complex vision of these issues and taking into account all aspects which affect solutions to these problems directly or indirectly.
That is why in the course of our Congress we would like to organize panel discussions which would allow us to look beyond, to improve our perception of global challenges that we face today and that will define our life in the future.
The topics of these discussions will be the following:
To ensure diversity of opinions in discussion we will invite the world’s most prominent experts, heads of credible international organizations, representatives of private sector.
I am sure that this discussion would prove fruitful to our auditing community.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Moscow next year at the INCOSAI 2019.
