I would like to express my sincere thanks to all participants of the Xth EUROSAI Congress, which was held in Istanbul on 22-25 May 2017. The Congress has proved to be quite substantial and fruitful with your participation and provided an invaluable opportunity to come together for exchanging our ideas and experiences especially on the issue of ISSAI implementation as well as outstanding problems in the field of public sector audit and other emerging issues related to the evolving role of the SAIs.

I would like to restate that great value will be added to the EUROSAI community with your valuable contributions by developing collaboration opportunities in the framework of the “open dialogue” principle and working in harmony in the following 3 years during the Presidency of the Turkish Court of Accounts.

Availing myself of this opportunity, I would like to convey my best wishes for your personal health and happiness and for the success and prosperity of your SAI/Organization and extend my thanks in advance for your future contributions.
