HÀ NỘI — Vice Chairwoman of the Vietnamese National Assembly (NA) Tòng Thị Phóng received President of the State Audit Organisation (SAO) of Laos Viengthong Siphandone in Hà Nội yesterday.
Phóng congratulated the SAO on its major achievements in recent years, especially in improving its stature and developing its apparatus.
She said the SAO delegation’s visit to Việt Nam would help strengthen the traditional friendship, special solidarity and comprehensive co-operation between the two countries.
The vice chairwoman noted that aside from improving the efficiency of financial audits, the SAV would step up auditing and evaluating the implementation of key national programmes and projects, the NA’s resolutions and policies relevant to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The two auditing agencies should continue to share experience while expanding various forms and fields of co-operation in both bilateral and multilateral aspects, Phóng added.
Siphandone highlighted the SAV’s support and assistance to the SAO over the years, as well as the effectiveness of bilateral co-ordination, particularly in personnel training.
She also expressed hope that the two sides would reinforce the comprehensive co-operation, as well as exchange experts and train auditors in a more effective manner in the future. — VNS
