IX Congress of the Caribbean Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions dedicated to the 25th anniversary of CAROSAI
The IX Congress of the Caribbean Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (CAROSAI) was held under the motto "Collaboration to Promote Best Practices" in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, from 18 to 21 March 2013. About 20 heads of Caribbean Supreme Audit Institutions participated in this 4-day congress. On this occasion, the chair of CAROSAI passed from Belize to Trinidad and Tobago.
In particular, the IX Congress of CAROSAI revolved around the development of CAROSAI since its foundation 25 years ago in 1988. The 25th anniversary was also perceived as an occasion to further discuss opportunities with regard to stepping up cooperation in the audit area and to address current and planned capacity building programmes. It also provided the framework for presenting the new strategic plan of CAROSAI.
As part of INTOSAI, Mr Josef Moser, Secretary General of INTOSAI, and Mr Terence Nombembe, Chairman of INTOSAI, participated in this Congress.
In his presentation, Mr Moser informed about current developments in INTOSAI, encompassing the progress made in the wake of the adoption of the UN General Assembly Resolution on strengthening SAI independence and the current activities in the areas of all 4 strategic goals of INTOSAI. Furthermore, the Secretary General presented the results of the 22nd UN/INTOSAI Symposium held in Vienna in March 2013 and entitled "Audit and Advisory by SAIs: Risks and Opportunities, as well as Possibilities for Engaging Citizens".
