Taiwan’s Control Yuan President Chang Po-ya (張博雅) participated in the 11th World Conference of the International Ombudsnan Institute (IOI) that concluded Saturday in Bangkok, at the head of a four-member delegation.
Chang said that during the meeting, which began Nov. 16, she shared her experiences with the delegates from other countries on the operation and tasks of her office, as well as the structure and functions of the Control Yuan, one of the country’s five branches of government, including the impeachment, censure, supervision, audit and investigation of government officials’ conduct.
Chang said she also exchanged experiences with foreign ombudsmen, which gave her a better understanding of the operation of foreign supervisory agencies and strengthened her personal friendships.
Under the theme of “Evolution of Ombudsmanship,” ombudsmen from all over the world shared their experiences and expertise in the four-day meeting, learning from each other about protecting and promoting human rights, fighting maladministration and upholding good governance and rule of law.
Chang and her delegation was scheduled to return to Taiwan on Sunday.
