International accounting bodies strengthen relationships with the Malta Institute of Accountants
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.
