ASEAN Internal Audit Network Inaugural Meeting

21 July 2016 to 22 July 2016

The ASEAN Central Banks Head of Internal Audit Network pushes for professionalism and collaboration in internal auditing practices.

The Office of the Auditor General of the Asian Development Bank organized the Network’s inaugural meeting in Manila to provide a forum for development of methodologies and related innovation. It was also an opportunity to enable its members to add value to their respective institutions. 

The inaugural meeting was conducted with one “ASEAN Spirit”, a common goal and idea of building trust and cooperation based on equality, consultation, mutual understanding, and respect. It was attended by 13 delegates from 9 out of 10 central banks (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Viet Nam) in the ASEAN Member States.  The next meeting in 2017 will be hosted by the Central Bank of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
