The year 2017 saw the adoption of Slovenian Development Strategy, a national document which follows the objectives of sustainable development and is thus extremely welcome as regards the work of the Court of Audit of the Republic of Slovenia. There exists an ever-increasing awareness that the use of public funds in future will significantly depend on the recognition and pursuing of those objectives. It is our ambition to clearly and efficiently fulfil the recognised objectives at national and local level. As a supreme audit institution we believe it is our responsibility to call upon preventive actions and diligent planning through our audit reports, advisory function and other means of communication. In this regard, timely response to national and global challenges is of key importance.
