A delegation from the State Audit Office of Vietnam (SAV) led by Deputy Chief State Auditor Cao Tan Khong is on a working visit to Thailand from Sept. 21-25 to strengthen bilateral ties.

Khong held a working session with Deputy Head of the Office of the Auditor General of Thailand (OAG) Pisit Leelavachirropas on September 22, sharing information and experience in auditing public debts, making auditing plans, defining middle and long-term auditing targets and discussing opportunities for future cooperation.

The two sides proposed boosting cooperation through the exchange of delegations, sending officials and experts to seminars and discussions held by each side, and actively supporting each other in the framework of the Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI) and the ASEAN Supreme Audit Institution (ASEAN SAI).

On September 23, the SAV delegation had a working session with Thailand ’s Audit Region 8 in Chiang Mai.

After the Thailand visit, the Vietnamese auditors will pay a working visit to Myanmar from September 26-29.
