In­ter­na­tional ac­count­ing bod­ies strengthen re­la­tion­ships with the Malta In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants

The Malta Business Weekly - - NEWS -

The Malta In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants has cul­ti­vated strong re­la­tion­ships with the lead­ing in­ter­na­tional pro­fes­sional bod­ies, among them the As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants and the In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Eng­land and Wales.

This week, ICAEW Re­gional direc­tor for Europe Martin Manuzi and ACCA Global pres­i­dent Leo Lee will be in Malta to at­tend an event by the MIA. To­gether with FEMA Dean Prof. Frank Bezzina, they will award stu­dents in the re­spec­tive qual­i­fi­ca­tion paths: Univer­sity of Malta de­gree, ACCA and As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants.

Malta’s emer­gence as a cen­tre of fi­nan­cial in­no­va­tion is fur­ther at­tract­ing the in­ter­est of pro­fes- sional bod­ies in lo­cal pro­fes­sion­als and, with its com­mit­ment to the high­est stan­dards, the Malta In­sti­tute of Ac­coun­tants has earned the re­spect of im­por­tant in­ter­na­tional stake­hold­ers.

Ac­count­ing pro­fes­sion­als in Malta ben­e­fit from the close col­lab­o­ra­tion, keep­ing them at the fore­front of the dy­namic field of ac­coun­tancy. The In­sti­tute held var­i­ous suc­cess­ful joint ini­tia­tives with both ACCA and ICAEW, rais­ing the stature of the ac­count­ing pro­fes­sion in Malta glob­ally and of­fer­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties to its mem­bers.

Among other mea­sures, the In­sti­tute has a Joint Ex­am­i­na­tion Scheme agree­ment with ACCA, grant­ing in­ter­na­tion­ally-recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions with lo­cal rel- evance. ICAEW is cur­rently also work­ing with the MIA on an Ac­coun­tancy Pro­fes­sion Strate­gic Fo­rum to be held in Malta next year.

The ac­coun­tancy pro­fes­sion in Malta can rely on the strong rap­port the In­sti­tute keeps with in­ter­na­tional bod­ies like the ICAEW and ACCA, as well as the Univer­sity of Malta.
