Vietnam attaches importance to auditing work as it supports both the National Assembly and the Government to manage the national financial resources, said PM Dung during his reception for the INTOSAI Secretary General.
PM Dung hoped that INTOSAI would continue to foster ties with the State Audit of Vietnam (SAV) to beef up experience sharing, training and institutional improvement.
According to Secretary General Josef Moser, INTOSAI has made contributions to transparency improvement, poverty reduction and financial management in 190 member states.
He also spoke highly of SAV’s operations and underlined his support for Vietnam in terms of policy consultations and manpower training.

Vietnam, still needs more support from the WB in policy consultations and preferential credit source to maintain the acquired achievements and avoid the “middle-income trap.”
The Government chief pledged to take more drastic measures to effectively tap the support and speed up disbursement progresses of WB-sponsored projects.
