Dear CBC members and observers,

I trust this communiqué finds you all in good health and positive about us jointly overcoming these very difficult times.

I am writing to you with regards to the 2020 CBC-IDSC contiguous meetings scheduled to be held in Jamaica from 14-17 September. Something that we were, and still are, excited about. Together with our kind host, the Auditor-General of Jamaica, and the IDSC leadership, we have for some time already been working on both logistics and content to make the meeting a great a success.

However, the current Covid-19 situation has forced us to be open to a possible postponement of the meeting, or a change in the format of the meeting. To this end we have given ourselves the deadline of 31 May to make a final decision on whether there is still a realistic way to carry on with the meeting as planned.

Please therefore keep a lookout for communication from the CBC in this regard very early in June.

 

Kimi Makwetu

Auditor-General of South Africa, Chair: INTOSAI Capacity Building Committee
