On 5 September 2018, the SAO President Miloslav Kala welcomed representatives of the State Budget Control Select Committee of the Parliament of the Republic of Estonia headed by its Chairman, Mr Aivar Sõerd. The nine-member delegation was also accompanied by Ms Eva-Maria Liimets, the Ambassador of the Republic of Estonia to Prague.
The delegation visited the Czech Republic to meet representatives of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic. During this visit, the Estonian representatives paid a visit to the SAO in order to learn about the functioning and fundamental principles of our Office, the relationship between the SAO and the Chamber of Deputies and, last but not least, the impact of our audits on public life. The SAO President also mentioned other important issues regarding our Office such as the EUROSAI Presidency in the years 2020 to 2023 and the associated organization of the 11th Congress in 2020 in Prague, the Hackathon, and the Benchmarking Information Exchange Project (BIEP), which has attracted the greatest interest in Estonian guests.
The meeting was held in a friendly atmosphere, where both sides learned about their good practice and experience of audits and state budget issues in Estonia and the Czech Republic.
