Having listened to the feedback we received after last year’s meeting in Lima, the meeting will have a slightly different format this year:
Day 1: Work stream meetings and Capacity Development Forum (regional round-table discussions). Session open for all members.
Day 2: All day CBC meeting
Day 3: All day CBC meeting, closing with CBC Steering Committee Meeting.
There will be two themes, closely aligned with the INTOSAI agenda and the themes of the upcoming Congress, and we look very much forward to engaging with you around the following topics from a CBC point of view:
Theme 1: Professionalization of auditors
Theme 2: SAI capacity and relevance from a Post 2015 deve/opment agenda perspective
The meeting will also discuss the input of the CBC with regards to Goal 2 of the new strategic plan of INTOSAI 2017-2022, and the priorities for the coming period.
