26/11/2019   Meeting with the Head of the National Audit Office of Finland: discussions on fiscal policy

Today, the Auditor General Arūnas Dulkys will meet with the Auditor General of the National Audit Office of Finland Tytti Yli-Viikari. This is the first visit of the Tytti Yli-Viikari to the National Audit Office of Lithuania. The meeting will focus on fiscal policy issues.

Like the National Audit Office of Lithuania, the National Audit Office of Finland performs external public sector audit and performs the functions of an independent fiscal institution. There are only a few audit institutions in the European Union that perform both the functions of public audit and fiscal institution, therefore cooperation between Lithuanian and Finnish public auditors is gaining additional importance, their meetings discuss a much greater variety of issues.

“We cooperate and sharing our expertise not only on fiscal policy but also on audit practice – when conducting the audit of Lithuanian students’ achievements, we contacted the Finnish colleagues with a request to share their experiences in the area. The National Progress Strategy “Lithuania 2030 contains an objective for Lithuania to align to Scandinavian best practices in particular, therefore Finland is a key partner to us”, - says the Auditor General Arūnas Dulkys.

During the meeting with the Auditor General of Finland representatives of the Budget Policy Monitoring Department – independent fiscal institution – will present their activity as well as results of the 2019 Review of the Lithuania‘s Independent Fiscal Institution carried out by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

On 27 November, the Auditor General of Finland will also participate in the National Conference on Sustainable Development SIGNALS 2019 organised by the National Audit Office of Lithuania where she will make a presentation on the Finnish public policy measures on social welfare and income distribution.
