Invitation by Auditor General of Uganda and Chair, INTOSAI Working Group on Audit of Extractive Industries (WGEI) 24th -26th August 2016, Mombasa, Kenya
It gives me great pleasure and honour to extend to you a warm invitation for the 3rd annual meeting of WGEI members and observers. It is with even greater pleasure that, Mr. Edward R.O. Ouko, the Auditor General of SAI Kenya, accepted to host this year’s annual meeting in Mombasa, Kenya from 24th – 26th August 2016.
This meeting gives us yet another opportunity to evaluate the performance of WGEI for the third time since its inception in Beijing, China in 2013. The meeting also provides an opportunity for practitioners in the field of extractive industry to share their challenging experiences and this year, under the theme; “The role of Supreme Audit Institutions in ensuring sustainable growth from extractive industries”. This industry continues to poise significant challenges for SAIs and practitioners alike because of its potential to provide enhancing life changing opportunities for citizens. This change, however, can only be positive if the revenues generated from extractive industries are prudently managed in an open and transparent manner and where possible under the close and watchful eyes of SAIs.
We look forward to receiving you in Mombasa
John F.S. Muwanga
