HA NOI — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung received a delegation of international auditors led by Josef Moser, Secretary General of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) yesterday.
At the reception, Dung stressed that Viet Nam attached importance to auditing work as it helped the National Assembly and the Government better manage financial resources and prevent corruption.
He affirmed support for making the State Audit of Viet Nam (SAV) an independent body and said he hoped that INTOSAI would closely co-ordinate with the SAV in experience sharing, human resource training and fine-tuning of institutions. Josef Moser, who is in Viet Nam to attend a seminar on the legal position of the State Audit and Auditor General in the Constitution of Viet Nam, affirmed that INTOSAI would co-ordinate with and assist Viet Nam in policy consultation and human resources training.
He said that through auditing activities, INTOSAI, which now has 190 member countries, has made active contributions to promoting transparency, reducing poverty and ensuring good financial management for its member countries.
On the same day, National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan also received representatives from the State Audit Agencies of Austria, Indonesia, South Korea and South Africa. — VNS
