We are delighted to announce that two outstanding members of SAO have been awarded prestigious scholarships to study for their Masters in Government Auditing degrees at the Nanjing Audit University (NAU) in China.

Ms. Paula Tumua, the Audit Director of the MPPA Unit, and Ms. Angel Kwan, the Senior Executive Assistant with the SPCS Unit, have been selected for this exceptional opportunity. Paula embarked on her journey to Nanjing in August 2023, while Angel is preparing to depart soon.

Paula and Angel's selection marks a significant milestone for SAO as they become the 7th and 8th nominees to participate in this esteemed program. Their selection reflects not only their dedication and commitment to their roles within SAO but also their potential to contribute to the field of auditing on an international scale.

We wish them every success in their studies and eagerly anticipate their contributions to our office.

We express our sincere gratitude to the Government of the People's Republic of China, the China National Audit Office (CNAO), and to NAU for their invaluable support in making these scholarships possible. This partnership continues to strengthen, fostering international cooperation in auditing, and promoting the professional growth of SAO's staff. We are truly thankful for this collaboration and the opportunity it offers.

Paula and Angel's journey to Nanjing is a testament to SAO's commitment to excellence and continuous learning. We eagerly anticipate the knowledge and expertise they will bring back to enhance our audit practices and contribute to Samoa's development. 

Congratulations Paula and Angel!
