He reminded that the supreme audit institutions are, in a democracy the linchpin of a sound public governance as well as the guarantee of an efficient public spending, for the benefit of each citizen.

Mr Bergamini has also stressed the importance of the adoption of the organic law on the Court of Auditors, currently being debated in the Tunisian Assembly of the Representatives of the People.
