IIA–Chinese Taiwan Strengthening International Exchanges
A recent article in Economic Daily News (Taiwan) reported on IIA–Chinese Taiwan leaders taking a strong position on local issues and participating in global internal audit industry events.
IIA–Chinese Taiwan Chair Doris Yi-hsin Wang, CIA, CGAP, CRMA, and member of The IIA’s Board of Directors and Institute Relations Committee, has participated in conferences and seminars for the past year urging the reinforcement of internal control, internal audit, and prevention of corrupt practices with the goal of increasing awareness of and improving internal audit standards in China. Last year, IIA–Chinese Taiwan hosted the 2013 ACIIA Conference in Taipei which was attended by IIA Global Chair Paul Sobel and IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers as well as local government officials, dignitaries, auditing professionals, and other representatives. Later this year, Dr. Wang is arranging for a delegation to participate in ACIIA’s Conference in Indonesia.
On her mission to promote internal auditing, Dr. Wang has also led delegations and delivered speeches on internal audit topics across China, with stops in Shanghai, Nanjing, and Beijing.
Additionally, IIA–Chinese Taiwan Vice Chair Dragon Dai gained exposure by attending The IIA’s 2014 International Conference in London, England, this past July. Dai is a member of The IIA’s Professional Issues Committee.
Together, their work is leading to high level recognition within China of the significance, quality, and value of internal audit guidance promulgated by The IIA, such as the International Professional Practices Framework.
