HA NOI (VNS)— A delegation from South Korea's Board of Audit and Inspection, led by its chairman, Kun Yang, is concluding a four-day visit to Viet Nam during which it sought ways to boost co-operation with Vietnamese counterparts.
At a reception for the delegation in Ha Noi on Saturday, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan said he was pleased with strong developments in multi-faceted co-operation between Viet Nam and South Korea.
Cultural similarities and other conditions were favourable for the two countries to continue boosting multifaceted ties in a more intensive, effective and comprehensive way during the 20th anniversary this year of diplomatic ties between the two countries, Nhan said.
Nhan spoke highly of the close and effective co-operation between the Vietnamese Government Inspectorate and South Korea's Board of Audit and Inspection, expressing his wish that the two sides would continue strengthening co-operation, particularly in sharing experience and in personnel training.
Kun Yang said he hoped that his delegation's visit would help further develop the board's relations with the Government Inspectorate.
Earlier on Saturday, the delegation had a working session with Vietnamese Auditor General Dinh Tien Dung, who noted important developments in bilateral relations since an agreement on bilateral exchange and co-operation was signed in 2007.
The two sides have exchanged working visits and experience in public sector auditing, said Dung, adding that South Korea helped the State Audit of Viet Nam successfully host the 42nd meeting of the executive committee of the Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI) in August 2010.
Kun Yang informed Dung of recent ASOSAI activities and the primary issues to be discussed at the 63rd session of the executive committee of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI). — VNS
