GCC audit training committee recommends new programs, urges coordination.

| KUWAIT, Feb 16 (KUNA) -- The training and development committee of Gulf Cooperation Council audit bureaus held its 20th meeting at Kuwait Audit Bureau (KAB), February 13-15, and recommended a host of new programs and that bureaus and departments coordinate closer and communicate difficulties and expectations to parties in charge.

A statement by KAB Thursday reported the approval of the recommendations in the report on programs held in 2011, and that the participants reviewed proposed programs for 2012, and also recommended it be approved. The new training programs relate to "international criteria for higher financial supervisory and audit bodies", "auditing from the prospective of institutional governance", and "linking the training chart and job promotion chart", among other topics.

The meeting urged the bureaus to pinpoint the areas they need training on and to coordinate with international specialized bodies in the same field to carry out advanced training and development programs. The committee also recommended a response to the proposed areas of interest that would benefit joint action, and that observations and proposals in this respect are forwarded for consideration.

One other area of focus at the meeting was research writing, and the conferees recommended a program in this area and tasked KAB with designing the program. The concerned material is to be presented to participants in the GCC contest in reports and research papers in the field of accounting and auditing.

The bureau said it was also recommended that each bureau publishes its papers and reports on its website to benefit other bureaus, as well as called for honoring winners of research competitions. The Bahrain National Audit Court is to prepare a summary of its own proposal on generalizing training projects and initiatives and forward it to the Secretariat.(end) mjb.ysa.wsa KUNA 161234 Feb 12NNNN
