The annual WGEI Steering Committee meeting was held in Pretoria, South Africa, from 25th to 27th September 2018. The theme of the meeting was “Illicit Financial Flows”. The guest speakers delivered detailed presentations on this subject and provided an insight into how SAIs can help prevent this practice.
The Steering Committee discussed a number of important issues including giving updates on the implementation of the activities in the WGEI Work Plan. Some of the discussions revolved around:
- Engaging members and regional secretariats
- Finalizing WGEI products (EI Training Framework, EI Toolkit and Briefing note on the Role of SAIs in EI)
- Ensuring that the quality assurance processes are followed for all products
