In the second week of March many INTOSAI stakeholders, including CBC Chair Mr Kimi Makwetu and Vice Chair Mr Magnus Lindell, gathered in Oslo for the IDI Board Meeting. The CBC Leadership and Secretariat also took the opportunity to discuss the forthcoming contiguous CBC-INTOSAI-Donor meeting in Cape Town in October 2016, and made great progress in working out details around the arrangements and programme together with the INTOSAI-Donor Secretariat and the IDI. Other matters of mutual interest were also discussed such as the SAI PMF post 2016, and preparations for INCOSAI in Abu Dhabi in December 2016.

Thus, the CBC-IDC meeting programme is taking shape nicely and all readers are encouraged to regularly keep an eye on the CBC website for invitation and further information on the big capacity building event of this year.
