In response, Yatun introduced the guest about the function, mission, and operations of the BPK to the Vietnamese delegation, including initiating the establishment of the Supreme Audit Institutions 20 (SAI20) of G20 countries and successfully holding the SAI20 Summit from September 29-30 in Bali during Indonesia’s G20 Presidency 2022.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic since 2020, the SAV actively chaired and attended over 80 online meetings, training courses, and seminars within the framework of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI), ASOSAI, and ASEANSAI, most notably the virtual 55th meeting of the ASOSAI”s Governing Board chaired by the SAV which was highly welcomed by ASOSAI.
At the ASOSAI 15, the SAV transferred its ASOSAI chairmanship to the State Audit Office of Thailand and became a member of the ASOSAI’s Governing Board for the 2021-2024 tenure.
