Panel Session
Pavilion 8, Conference Hall 8.3

Given the slowdown in economic growth, state financial monitoring and audit authorities have greater influence on choosing priority spending areas and identifying internal government reserves. What are the multiplier effects from different areas of state economic support, and what is the correlation between budget expenditures and government programme indicators? How are the roles of financial monitoring and audit bodies changing when it comes to assessing the efficiency of government authorities, and how do these organizations contribute to ensuring that these authorities assume greater responsibility for utilizing resources and achieve their stated goals and results?
