Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) are urged to realize ASOSAI Visions. The State Audit Office of Vietnam will do its best to keep up the good work from its predecessors, to make ASOSAI a standard model in SAI community. I also hope to cooperate well with ASOSAI’s new Secretary General to complete all tasks set for the next 3 years. I’m looking forward to getting your support in addressing all problems in a world that is getting more and more complicated, as well as the challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution.", said Mr. Phoc.
