SAV fulfils leadership role as ASOSAI Chair over last three years

As Chair of the Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI), the State Audit Office of Vietnam (SAV) played a leadership role in together with the ASOSAI Governing Board guiding SAI members to successfully realise key agendas over the last three years.

The SAV proved their capacity by staying active, innovative and flexible in performing ASOSAI’s professional tasks and responsibly contributing to the regional development.

Chairing the 14th ASOSAI Assembly in 2018, the SAV initiated the formulation of the Hanoi Declaration that demonstrates ASOSAI’s long-term vision in promoting environmental audit for sustainable development.

It cooperated with the Board of Audit of Japan, as ASOSAI’s Capacity Development Administrator, to step up capacity building and knowledge sharing among SAI members.

It also initiated the establishment of new ASOSAI working groups on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Crisis Management Audit, aiming to better prepare SAI members with emerging challenges and issues regionally and globally.

The SAV represented ASOSAI to take part in major international events – for example, the 9th International Public Sector Conference of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) of the UK in the Czech Republic, and the 23rd INTOSAI Congress in Russia themed “the role of the SAIs in the Achievement of National Priorities and Goals” – and sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the Arab Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ARABOSAI) to exchange expertise and bolster cooperation.

Despite COVID-19 impacts, the SAV coordinated with the ASOSAI Governing Board to further accelerate one of the organisation’s missions – to provide training for and promote exchange of expertise among SAI members.

Its mission as ASOSAI Chair came to an end at the 15th ASOSAI Assembly held from September 6 – 8, 2021./.
