The President of the Turkish Court of Accounts (TCA), Mr. Seyit Ahmet Baş, welcomed representatives from the European Court of Auditors (ECA) (pictured left, top) in March 2017 for various European Union (EU) public entity performance audits. The ECA also held a technical meeting with TCA officials and addressed results on the EU Twinning Project, which was jointly executed with the United Kingdom's Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) between 2005 and 2007.

The TCA also hosted Mr. Khaled Shokshok, President of the Libyan SAI, and his delegation (pictured left, bottom) March 10, 2017. During the visit, delegates exchanged ideas on numerous topics, including potential joint working areas.
