Press Release


National Conference on Sustainable Development “Signals 2019” will be held in November

On 27 November 2019, the National Audit Office is organising for the third time the National Conference on Sustainable Development “Signals”. The conference will be held at the Lithuanian Exhibition and Congress Centre LITEXPO.

The conference participants will be invited to discuss three main themes (Strategic thinking: do we see a part or the whole? Added value generating change: how to implement it? Social welfare puzzle: how to make decisions that bring positive changes?).

This year’s motto is LET’S SEE. LET’s CHANGE. Participants will be invited to discuss whether we want to continue to monitor certain parts of the public activities and public finances, whether we can see a whole and adopt the most efficient strategic decisions. At the conference, experts will share their experiences on how to successfully implement changes, will look for ways to implement changes, and will share best Lithuanian practices. It will also address the effectiveness of social policy measures in reducing income inequalities, well directed social assistance, the role of social dialogue, and the potential of social business.

The signals caught at the conference, the greatest challenges facing the State, and the significant tasks awaiting us will be discussed from personal insights by representatives of the academia, the public, and the National Audit Office of Lithuania at the closing session.

It will be for the second consecutive year that fellow public auditors will be awarded for innovative solutions and important initiatives for change.

“Signals 2019” will be attended by the heads of public sector institutions, business and academic leaders, and representatives of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

The conference is organised in partnership with INTOSAI (International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions), European Commission Representation in Lithuania, Vilnius University Institute of International Relations and Political Sciences, and the British Council. For more information see:
