She added: “In the near future, I want the State Audit Office of Vietnam to increase publicity, transparency, professionalism, and modernization of its operations, build a contingent of auditors, who have work ethics and competence and are equipped with modern auditing methods. The State Audit of Vietnam should continue to uphold its role as the protector of laws and integrity of the public finance and asset management system. I hope that the auditors will work together to create a new momentum for regional countries’ prosperity. I believe that ASOSAI 14 will be a success.”

Auditor General of the State Audit Office of Vietnam Ho Duc Phoc said his organization will strengthen cooperation and solidarity between supreme auditing institutions.
