Nusa Dua, Monday (29 August 2022) – Vice President Ma’ruf Amin praised the Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia’s (BPK RI) initiative to establish Supreme Audit Institutions 20 (SAI20) during the country’s G20 Presidency. The SAI20 formation will become one of Indonesia’s G20 Presidency legacies. “I believe the SAI20 establishment will provide added value to the global community by building a more resilient governance and encouraging a more effective collaboration between SAI, governments, and other stakeholders,” said Ma’ruf Amin at the SAI20 Summit opening.
Before the leaders of BPK and 12 audit agencies from G20 member countries, Ma’ruf Amin highlighted that the governments needed their support to oversee national economic recovery so that Indonesia’s G20 Presidency priorities, namely global health architecture, energy transition, and digital transformation, are in line with the governance principles.
The government hoped that SAI20 could provide an independent audit perspective to help the government to formulate economic recovery policies, to achieve SDGs targets, and to prepare for future crises.
BPK Chair Isma Yatun admitted that the presence of the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia at the SAI20 Summit is an honor for SAI20 and shows a real collaboration in overseeing the accountability ecosystem in more transparent and accountable governance. “SAI20 seeks effective collaboration among audit bodies and governments within the G20 community to ensure the implementation of SAI’s commitments, roles, and recommendations,” said Isma Yatun.
The SAI20 Summit which took place in Nusa Dua, Bali on August 29—30 will ratify the Rules of Procedures (RoP) and SAI20 communique agreement and discuss global and national issues on health architecture, energy transition, and digital transformation.
