Manager, Mr. Ibrahim Naseer Umar (Reporting and Follow-up Unit) and Auditor, Mr. Awwam Mohamed (Public Sector Audit Unit) are currently in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for an exposure trip and internship program offered by General Auditing Bureau of Saudi Arabia (GAB). Over the course of the two-month program, the participants from Auditor General’s Office (AGO) will gain insights into audit methodology and audit practices. The purpose of the program is to strengthen the mutual cooperation and enhance professional technical capacity building of both SAIs.

The program was a development of the official visit made by President of the General Auditing Bureau of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, H.E. Dr. Hussam Abdulmohsen Alangari, earlier this year, for an invitation extended by the Auditor General of the Maldives. During the visit, discussions were held on areas and options in creating training opportunities for AGO staff and ways to further enhance the professional relationship between the SAIs of the two countries.
