In their comment, the Hungarian delegation led by Mr. Tihamér Warvasovszky called the attention to the fact that supreme audit institutions can contribute to sustainable development mainly if they audit the sustainability of budget policies and the efficiency of the utilisation of public funds and public property. Dr. Gyula Pulay, Supervisory Manager pointed out that budgetary rules are adopted in more and more countries. The audit of such rules could be an important task for SAIs in the future. Dr. Pulay presented briefly the role of the State Audit Office of Hungary in the audit of the public debt rule.
The event provided opportunity for the Hungarian delegation to discuss issues related to the application of SAO to the position of external auditor of UNIDO with the CNAO managers responsible for international issues.
