At the working meeting Members of the EUROSAI Governing Board discussed, among others, progress in the implementation of the EUROSAI Strategic Plan.

Participants of the meeting decided to once again analyse the implementation process of the Strategic Plan in order to disambiguate the adopted objectives. For this purpose the Latvian delegation presented an analysis of the EUROSAI communication policy, and the Turkish colleagues prepared a new website - dedicated to the implementation of the Strategic Plan. Poles suggested to improve information exchange between the Members. A closer bilateral cooperation of EUROSAI Governing Board with individual SAIs, to inform them on the objectives and plans of EUROSAI, will raise awareness and involvement, needed to ensure effective and influential operations of the Organisation.
