The Administration Wing of New Territories South (NTS) Region held a sharing session on September 12 about lessons learnt from internal audits conducted on formations/units in NTS Region. Fifty-seven management officers from formations in NTS attended the session.

She pointed out the importance of explaining relevant requirements to officers concerned.

In addition, Executive Officer of Airport District Ms Miranda Ho shared the experience of conducting a pre-inspection before the commencement of an internal audit.
