President Iohannis: Control, audit of the use of public resources become essential in the current context

On Thursday, President Klaus Iohannis awarded decorations to several presidents of supreme audit institutions from European states, including the president of the Court of Accounts of Romania, Mihai Busuioc.

The head of state said that, in the current context, the control and audit of the use of public resources become essential.

“The European climate, the crises and the war in our vicinity, but especially the related challenges urge us to unity and solidarity, and your presence today, here, is more proof that the European family can overcome these troubled times through a common and coordinated effort. In this context, the role of control and audit institutions becomes even more important in the institutional architecture, but also decisive for the way in which, together, we will manage to overcome periods of crisis. The efficiency of public policies and the quality of governance are the faithful expression of the manner in which state authorities fulfill their mission. The control and audit of the use of public resources become essential in the current context, and the relevant institutions must adjust their structure, their way of working and interaction so as to respond to the demands of allocation and use of resources as judiciously as possible,” said the head of state, at the award ceremony that took place at the Cotroceni Palace.

He congratulated the Romanian Court of Accounts on the occasion of its 30th anniversary since re-establishment and underscored the need for the institution to become a promoter of discipline and responsibility, while highlighting the increased importance of the educational and preventive role of the control and audit activities.
