As part of its UK Overseas Territories Project, CPA UK hosted a virtual multilateral forum in partnership with the UK National Audit Office (NAO) and the Government Internal Audit Agency (GIAA). The forum took place over three half days from 30 November - 2 December 2021.

This was the fourth programme of its kind, designed to bring together key stakeholders from across the Overseas Territories, including Speakers, Members, and Clerks from Legislatures, as well as Internal and External Auditors and Electoral Officials, to explore issues relating to good governance and oversight of public finances.

Participating territories included Anguilla, Bermuda, The British Virgin Islands, The Cayman Islands, The Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, St Helena, and The Turks and Caicos Islands.

Delivered against the backdrop of the global pandemic, the virtual forum provided a platform for delegates to identify ways to strengthen financial oversight and good governance across the Overseas Territories. It also explored how delegates can collaborate with their counterparts on Pandemic Recovery,Scrutiny and Communicating with Impact.
