VGP - The ASOSAI Chairmanship was handed over to Viet Nam for the 2018-2021 period, at the first plenary session of the 14th ASOSAI Assembly in Ha Noi on September 19.

"It’s necessary for us to learn from lessons and experiences gained in the past while putting forward new ideas and approaches to improve work efficiency. Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) are urged to realize ASOSAI Visions. The State Audit Office of Viet Nam 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 4thIndustrial Revolution.", said Mr. Phoc.
