Auditor-General W.P.C. Wickramaratne and Deputy Auditor-General P.L.K. Perera represented Sri Lanka at the 23rd Congress of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (XXIII INCOSAI), which was held from September 23 to 29 in Moscow.

The event was attended by over 600 delegates representing 168 audit institutions from around the world, who gathered to exchange opinions on the importance of information technology in the development of public administration, as well as the role of the Supreme Audit Institutions in the achievement of national priorities and goals, a press release from the Sri Lankan Embassy in Russia stated. Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the congress on September 25. In his address, President Putin said, “Cooperation…and exchange of experience between national and external audit agencies, are some of the key steps leading to confidence-building and predictability in the global economy.”

He invited the attendees of the congress to join the initiative to create “an open international databank,” which is to be used to tackle socioeconomic issues more effectively on a global scale. The Sri Lankan delegation participated in plenary sessions on the issues surrounding macro-audits, as well as the use of information technology and public management tools by governments, the release said.

The congress appointed Russian Accounts Chamber Chairman Alexei Kudrin the Chairman and President of the INTOSAI Governing Board for the next three years.
