The Office of the Auditor General of the Union has partnered with the Asian Development Bank in coordinating a workshop on regional capacity development and technical assistance (R-CDTA) titled “Enhancing Roles of Supreme Audit Institutions in Selected Countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations”.
The workshop began in Nay Pyi Taw on 19 January and will continue until 22 January. Officials from the Office of the Auditor General and various ministries and agencies and representatives from the World Bank and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) are attending the workshop.
The technical assistance aims strengthen the capacity of the Office of the Auditor General, bringing it into greater compliance with international standards of Supreme Audit Institutions and better-quality public finance audits, in support of its mandate under the Auditor General of the Union Law of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. These efforts are expected to improve public sector accountability, transparency and good governance in relation to the use of both public and development partner funds.
The technical assistance was approved by the Asian Development Bank in December 2014 with funding from the Government of Japan’s Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction. The supreme audit institutions of the Philippines, Vietnam and Lao PDR are also included in the R-CDTA programme.—GNLM
