NDO/VNA – Comptroller and Auditor General of the National Audit Office of the UK (NAO) Amyas Morse and State Auditor General of Vietnam Ho Duc Phoc have agreed to share information on financial auditing and continue with their IT and personnel training cooperation.

Phoc is visiting the UK from November 26 – 30 in order to boost the ties between the State Audit Office of Vietnam (SAV) and the NAO, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

During a working session with the NAO, Phoc suggested that the NAO continues sharing the UK’s law on state auditing, operational processes, the environment and tax auditing with Vietnam and sending experts to the country to share their experience.

He asked both sides to regularly update each other on the skills and documents, while offering support in multilateral events hosted by the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions.

During a working session on November 28, the SAV and ACCA agreed to continue discussing the contents of a joint study project on environmental auditing for sustainable development and to hold seminars and dialogues to share experience in financial and public asset auditing.

The ACCA vowed to open training courses to improve the SAV’s capacity of holding the Congress of the Asian Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (ASOSAI).

The SAV and the ICAEW also pledged to hold training courses on operating and environmental audits.

The Vietnamese delegation proposed that the ICAEW continues sending experts to Vietnam to share their experience via teleconferences, workshops and training courses.

On the occasion, Phoc invited NAO Auditor General Morse, ACCA Chief Executive Officer Helen Brand and ICAEW Chief Executive Officer Michael Izza to the 14th ASOSAI Congress scheduled for September 19-22, 2018, in Hanoi.
