In future cooperation with INTOSAI Chairman pushes to the fore applying int’l experience in financial control and combating graft and venality

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

 
The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine A.V.Parubiy stressed the importance of applying international experience in financial control

During a meeting with the President of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI), President of the State Audit Institution-UAE Dr. Harib Al Amimi, the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine A.V.Parubiy said that cooperation with the international auditing companies is very important for Ukraine. "Cooperation with the international auditing companies is very important, because in Ukraine, the Accounting Chamber is the main instrument of control over the executive branch.  In recent years, we have made lots of efforts to improve the work of the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine, have adopted a new modern law, taking into consideration world’s best practices," he clarified.

According to the politician, after the law was adopted, the most important thing there was renewal of the composition and election of the chairman of the Accounting Chamber. Through the agency of the Accounting Chamber, there was completely rearranged the entire budget process in the usage of public finances.

A.Parubiy noted that Ukraine is now experiencing difficult times as it is forced to rebuff the Russian aggression and, at the same time, the country must carry out democratic reforms and build a strong and powerful parliamentarism at home.

The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada stressed that one of the key issues for Ukraine is the fight against corruption, the origins of which have been since the Soviet era. He reminded that over the past years, there have been established and launched several structures within the framework of the anti-corruption crusade, and namely: The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), The Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPo), The National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP)  as well as the High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine (HACC), which is already starting its work.

"We do have a deep understanding that finding corruption is just a consequence, but it is more important to see corruption risks before adopting a budget in order to prevent venal practices at a stage of the budget’s birth," said A.Parubiy.  - This is actually the issue the Accounting Chamber is in charge of, and its role is extremely important and weighty; highly qualified specialists are engaged in working for the Accounting Chamber, which then enjoys a high prestige at the Parliament”.

"In the context of improving our work, the UAE's experience is extremely important for Ukrainians," said A.Parubiy and stressed that the government is also interested in preventing corruption risks in order to avoid painful blows to authority in the event of disclosure of corrupt practices. “The general mood of the Ukrainian authorities is to prevent, detect and stop any actions that may have negative consequences," the head of parliament added.

The Chairman of the Accounting Chamber of Ukraine Valerii Patskan noted that this is the first visit to Ukraine of a respectable international auditing company, which unites audit offices of two hundred countries of the world - more than the United Nations. "We have agreed that we will work in harness with the United Arab Emirates in our fight against corruption, with the country that is the world’s leader in combating venality," he said. - Our specialists will be trained in the UAE to gain experience and use it in the fight against corruption”.

In his turn, Dr. Al Amimi noted that the Accounting Chamber, together with the State Audit Institution – UAE, had signed a memorandum of cooperation, according to which the Ukrainian side would take over the UAE’s experience in combating corruption and conducting IT-audits.

He also emphasized that Ukraine and the UAE are brought together through special relations, in particular in the political, economic and cultural spheres, and accentuated the professional cooperation between the Emirates and the Accounting Chamber.

"Our common goal is preserving finance and combating graft and corruption," the President of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions explained in conclusion.  Al Amimi assured A.Parubiy of any assistance and wished Ukraine stability and further development.

What INTOSAI is?

The International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI) operates as an umbrella organization for the external government audit community. For more than 50 years it has provided an institutionalized framework for supreme audit institutions to promote development and transfer of knowledge, improve government auditing worldwide and enhance professional capacities, standing and influence of member SAIs in their respective countries. In keeping with INTOSAI's motto, 'Experientia mutua omnibus prodest', the exchange of experience among INTOSAI members and the findings and insights which result, are a guarantee that government auditing continuously progresses with new developments.

INTOSAI is an autonomous, independent and non-political organization. It is a non-governmental organization with special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.

INTOSAI was founded in 1953 at the initiative of Emilio Fernandez Camus, then President of the SAI of Cuba. At that time, 34 SAIs met for the 1st INTOSAI Congress in Cuba. At present, INTOSAI has 194 Full Members, 5 Associate Members and 1 Affiliate Member.
