ACCA signs MoU with ICCI

The Association of Chartered Accountants (ACCA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI).

The MoU, signed by ICCI president Yassar Sakhi Butt and ACCA Pakistan’s head of public affairs Shamez Mukhi, is intended to “promote the highest professional, ethical and governance standards, advance the public interest and to support the accounting profession and business community”.

Mukhi said that the ACCA was seeking “value addition” to allow its members and business enterprises to “achieve effective outputs and outcomes”, adding that the new agreement “may prove to be a cornerstone for other similarly progressive enterprises”.

Butt expressed hopes that the government would “ensure the development of a comprehensive ICT infrastructure” as well as opening institutes throughout the country to train entrepreneurs and promote the use of ICT in business.

He hailed the ACCA’s work on research and insights “which would enable us to strengthen relationships with the business community further”.
