Deputy Auditor General Vu Van Hoa made the statement while attending the Supreme Audit Institutions (SAI) Leadership and Stakeholders meeting held in New York from July 22-23.

Speaking at the two-day meeting, Deputy Auditor General Vu Van Hoa shared experience in auditing SGDs implementation in Vietnam in the recent past.

Specifically, during the 2017-2020 period, Vietnam has paid attention to fine-tuning State laws and policies on sustainable development and completing action plans and specific tasks to meet SDGs up to 2030, he said, adding that the country will also raise public awareness of the effort via all-level training curricula.

From 2021-2030, Vietnam will effectively tap into domestic and foreign resources to realise SDGs, develop a high-quality workforce, adopt modern technology, especially those used for environment and energy, he noted.

Deputy Auditor General Vu Van Hoa also expressed his wish to enhance bilateral and multilateral cooperation with supreme audit offices globally in auditing issues regarding sustainable development.

Co-organised by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and the INTOSAI Development Initiative (IDI), the event attracted 150 leaders and representatives from supreme audit offices and the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions ((INTOSAI), among others.
