Fifty-seven participants from 24 ASOSAI member-states attended the meeting with active contribution in sharing national environmental auditing engagements. The event, which included numerous high-level presentations, focused on “Information Technology Applications in Environmental Audit” in an effort to incorporate and enhance the use of data analytics in environmental audits.
During the meeting, a cooperative audit on water environmental protection was approved, and 12 Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) have already expressed interest in joining. SAI Thailand has volunteered to spearhead this endeavor.
