Contiguous Annual Meetings of the INTOSAI Capacity Building Committee and the INTOSAI-Donor Cooperation in Cape Town, 3-6 October 2016
Time passes quickly and it will soon be time to welcome you all to the upcoming Annual Meeting in Cape Town, South Africa. The meeting will be hosted by the Auditor-General of South Africa, CBC Chair Kimi Makwetu, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. All participants will be invited to welcoming cocktails on the evening of Monday, 3 October, and the joint dinner on Tuesday, 4 October (more details to be communicated at a later stage).
This time, the meeting will have a slightly different format as we welcome integration with the INTOSAI Donor Steering Committee (IDSC), turning two meetings, to a relevant extent, into one.
In the middle of March, the CBC and INTOSAI-Donor Secretariats, together with the IDI worked out the details around the programme of the forthcoming contiguous CBC-IDSC meeting taking place in October 2016. This resulted in a draft outline of the meeting, which was recently approved by both Leaderships, and the preparations for the INTOSAI capacity building event of the year are thus progressing very nicely.
The aim of a contiguous meeting is to move towards greater synergies between the two committees, while also reflecting their differences and the need for each committee to conclude its core business appropriately.
