What should EUROSAI look like in 2024?

The objective of the SAI Czech Republic Presidency of EUROSAI is to offer EUROSAI members platforms to promote and further develop cooperation among SAIs and EUROSAI working groups and project groups. As recent events have shown, international cooperation has become even more important, especially on issues related to pan-European topics such as health care, environment, transport, etc.

Our aim for EUROSAI is to respond flexibly to the challenges of modern times and to seek appropriate responses to provide added value to its members and to the citizens of each country. In this respect, SAI Czech Republic will encourage EUROSAI members to cooperate more closely in finding audit methodologies and procedures.
