Strengthening Auditing and Reporting in the Countries of the Eastern Partnership (STAREP) is a regional program implemented by the World Bank’s Centre for Financial Reporting Reform (CFRR) during 2013 – 2018 with the international best practices and EU standards. STAREP engages with participating countries at the regional community of practices, as well as locally with wider groups of stakeholders to identify common approaches and solutions to the shared challenges, as well as facilitate collaboration with EU and relevant global peer institutions.
