CIMA/Hong Kong agreement signed
7 June, Hong Kong
CIMA has signed a mutual exam paper exemptions agreement with the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) after a mutual review process.
The agreement, which took effect on 1 July and lasts until 30 June 2018, provides mutual exemptions for members of one body to become members of the other.
“This agreement strengthens long-standing links and friendships between CIMA and the HKICPA,” said CIMA’s managing director, Andrew Harding.
“For CIMA members it offers access to the HKICPA qualification programme and for Hong Kong CPAs it provides access to CIMA membership and the CGMA designation, which was established through our joint venture with the AICPA.”
Harding (pictured, third from right) added: “We believe that businesses across the world need strong management accounting skills to support their sustainable growth. We look forward to working with our colleagues at the HKICPA to help maintain Hong Kong’s reputation as a world-leading centre for business.”
