Muscat: The Association for Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has recognised over 50 members in Oman, who achieved a momentous professional milestone by becoming ACCA members.
They were honoured at an event held at the Crowne Plaza, Muscat on April 17, which was attended by leading businesses, finance professionals and the corporate community of Oman and sponsored by Oman LNG.
The individuals who were honoured have completed the ACCA qualification by passing all their exams, along with completing three years of practical work experience and the Professional Ethics module. Their commitment to education and providing invaluable insight to further developing the business landscape in Oman further enabled them to achieve membership status.
By becoming ACCA members, they are now part of a global professional body with a reputation for driving global standards of professionalism, ethics, integrity and accountability.
The new members received their ACCA certificates under the patronage of Saud bin Nasser Al Shukaili, secretary general for Taxation. During the event, they also heard from Lindsay Degouve de Nunques, head of ACCA Middle East, who opened the event, and Hafidh Al Harthy, deputy CEO of Oman LNG.
Lindsay Degouve de Nuncques, head of ACCA Middle East said: “We are delighted to provide formal recognition to our new members in Oman who are now a part of a global network of leading members. By attaining membership status, they can not only go onto leading positions in Oman, but around the world too—given the reputation and kudos such accolade provides.”
“Our members have been recognised for their commitment in driving ethics, accountability and integrity within the profession in Oman. As such, they continue to be key to the economic development of the country and the finance profession overall.”
“We are thrilled that a number of our members are Omani nationals, who further fortify our local approach with a global qualification. ACCA builds lifelong relationships through programmes designed to suit the varying needs of accountants, finance professionals and non-finance professionals with financial responsibility—at all stages of their careers across the Middle East region and globally too. Our modern approach and our established reputation mean that we create a world of opportunity for learning and advancement and we are thrilled to recognise the ongoing commitment of our new members in Oman, who are vital for both current and future economic advancement,” Degouve de Nuncques concluded.
