AFROSAI-E 17th Technical Conference
The 17th Technical Conference, organized by the AFROSAI-E took place in Pretoria, South Africa over the period 18th to 20th October 2022. The conference was aimed at bringing together member countries and partners of the AFROSAI-E under the theme ‘connect’ to enable SAIs, partners and other stakeholders to engage in-person after more than 2 years of not being able to meet face-to-face due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Technical and financial partners of the AFROSAI-E such as INTOSAI, the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), the African Professionalization Initiative (API), the Norwegian SAI and Netherlands Court of Audit (NCA) shared more about the support they have provided to member-SAIs, new projects they are working on and how they intend to continue working and further assist our region. This was either through presentations during the conference itself or their exhibition booths.
The OAG Seychelles also participated in the exhibition where it showcased some of its products such as audit reports and the coastal audit video, the latter which was done in partnership with GIZ.
The presentations and discussions over the 3 days were primarily centered on the principles of INTOSAI-P 12 on the value and benefits of Supreme Audit Institutions. The sessions featured presentations and discussions over credibility and professionalization of SAIs, the future relevant auditors and audit-integration of the SDGs. New tools and materials developed by the AFROSAI-E were also presented.
