Message from the Chairman of ASOSAI
Dr. HO DUC PHOC
AUDITOR-GENERAL OF VIET NAM
AND CHAIRMAN OF ASOSAI
Greetings to all readers!
First of all, I would like to express a sincere and high appreciation to ASOSAI members, in general and to SAI of India – Chief Editor, in specific for their great endeavour and continuous contribution to the development of ASOSAI Journal which has been appraised as a valuable resource for knowledge sharing and collaboration for mutual benefits among SAI community.
With objectives of improving the quality and disseminating best practices in the field of governmental audit, ASOSAI Journal has covered various topics of public audit more in depth professionally and comprehensively, which always keeps pace with changing context of the region and the world. “Audit of public debt management”
is a traditional topic but always a burning issue and concerns to ASOSAI community because public debt has been a big problem and challenge faced by most countries in recent times, especially when the management of public debt plays an important role for sustainable development of national finance.
Accordingly, the theme is not only appreciated as a chance for SAI members to share views, experiences and best practices in the field of public debt management, but also highlights ASOSAI community’s efforts in dealing with the issue of public debt in Asian countries.
I strongly believe that the topic “Audit of public debt management”
discussed in this edition will help ASOSAI members and readers insightfully and comprehensively identify the issue so as to find out practical solutions to effectively conduct audits of public debt management in order to make greater contribution to the transparency and accountability of financial system in public sector at national, regional and international levels.
Finally, I would like to send the warm greetings to all readers with the wish for your health, happiness and great success.
