Beijing, Oct 22 – A delegation led by Gladys Bejerano, General Comptroller of the Republic of Cuba, is attending the 21st Congress of the International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI), which began today here.
This congress, involving 700 delegates from 165 countries, was preceded by the 6th INTOSAI-Donor Steering Committee meeting in Beijing on October 18 and 19, under the organization of the National Audit Office of China. Bejerano, Vice President of the Cuban Council of State, arrived in Beijing on Sunday and has held bilateral meetings since then with Auditor-General Liu Jiayi, and Li Qin, general director of the National Audit Office of China.
The delegation headed by the general comptroller was received yesterday evening by the Supervisory Minister and deputy chief of the Central Commission for Disciplinary Inspection of the Communist Party of China, Huang Shuxian, who presided over a welcome ceremony for the Cuban leader and her delegation.
Meanwhile, INTOSAI sources told reporters that previous sessions with the donor community had a record of 76 participants. They examined 25 funded or ongoing projects, double the proposals from the 2012 meeting.
The Congress of this UN body will conclude on Saturday.
