Another diplomatic achievement for Pakistan at the SCO forum


ISLAMABAD: The department of Auditor General of Pakistan (AGP) will host the fifth high-level meeting of the heads of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) of Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member countries here in Islamabad.

Officials said that this will be the first SCO meeting that Pakistan will host after attaining membership of the regional organization in 2017.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has granted principal approval for hosting the meeting by the AGP.

In consultation through subsequent engagements with the National Coordinator (NC) Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) at Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), it has been decided that the AGP office will host the SCO meeting in the first half of 2021.

Initially, the event was planned in October 2020 but had to be rescheduled owing to the Covid-19 travel restrictions in the member countries.
