A high-ranking Vietnamese delegation, led by State Auditor general Dinh Tien Dung, is paying a working visit to Laos on April 25-27 at the invitation of the Lao State Auditing Agency.
At a talk with Boursi Lovansay, President of the Lao State Auditing Agency, the two sides informed each other of the economic and financial situation, the process of state auditing development and future cooperation plans.
They noted with satisfaction the effective cooperation in auditing in recent times, including increasing reciprocal visits to raise mutual understanding. Besides, the Vietnamese side assisted Laos to train its auditors, and complete a project to build a training centre for the Lao State Auditing Agency in Bolikhamsay province.
They hailed the success in annual cooperation among the three state auditing agencies of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
The two agencies expressed hope for closer cooperation to increase each other’s operational efficiency, exchange high-ranking delegations, send Vietnamese experts to help Laos, build an auditing development strategy to 2020 and share knowledge on public auditing through conferences and seminars.
Vietnam and Laos committed to supporting each other in multilateral forums, particularly within the framework of the Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI), to help the organisation develop further.
