Chales Nancarrow and Rich Sullivan-Jones from the National Audit Office (NAO) of the United Kingdom, as well as, Jacobo Garcia Villarreal, Manuel Gerardo Flores and Andrés Blancas from OECD were the main speakers. Over 160 participants from ASF participated in the webinar, together with Mr. Agustin Caso Rapahel, Special Performance Auditor; Mr. Gerardo Lozano Dubernard, Special Auditor of Financial Compliance and Mr. Ronald Poucel Van Der Mersch, Director General of Performance Audit for Economic Development, from ASF.
