As an extension of the constant engagement of the department with other Supreme Audit Institutions and International Organisations, training is offered to officers from countries like Bhutan and Nepal. The international officers play an important role in enriching the training. The cross exchange of ideas, experiences and cultures widens the perspectives of all involved. Many of the international officers also have put in years of service in their respective Supreme Audit Institutions and bring with them the benefit of practical knowledge.
Over the years such an arrangement has become an integral part of the training at the Academy and the experience has fostered better relations and understanding with our neighbouring countries. The international officers return to their respective countries at the end of Phase I. The associations with friends and colleagues from various countries is a cherished memory of training for the IA&AS Officer Trainees and paves the way for continuous international engagement throughout their careers.
