CAP Attends East African Chief Executives Meeting

Jan 26, 2012 | Kigali, Rwanda | English

While in Kigali, Rwanda, for the CAP, which was hosted by the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Rwanda (currently applying for IFAC membership), IFAC member body development staff and CAP members met with attendees of the East Africa Community Institutes of Accountants Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) Strategy Meeting. The meeting brought together leaders of the East African PAOs to discuss the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) signed in September 2011.

The executives discussed developments and challenges within the accountancy profession and their organizations, including their IFAC Compliance Program Action Plan priorities. Members of the CAP noted the signing of the MRA between the five countries—Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda—represents a unique and positive step toward enhanced knowledge sharing and collaboration in the region, which has three IFAC members and one organization applying for associate status.

The meeting included a presentation from Vickson Ncube, CEO of the Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA), on the development of PAFA strategy and confirmation of its intention to apply for IFAC Recognized Regional Organization status in 2012.
