Accounting is the foundation for business in any economy.

And for Fiji, a strong accounting profession will continue to develop a strong Fijian economy.

Head of International Business Certified Practising Accountants  Australia  David Jenkins said they were ready to help support and develop Fiji’s curriculum, especially in accounting.

“This is a long term initiative for Fiji and the wider Pacific. This is just one of the many initiatives that we hope to do,” Mr Jenkins said.

“This is because CPA is internationally-recognised and is one of the best brands in the world. And for Fiji, identifying areas in the curriculum where we are lacking and working towards bridging that gap.

“This is especially for years 11 and 12. We will do a bench marking exercise. This is the first time for this take place in Fiji.”

An agreement was signed recently between Fiji’s Ministry of Education and CPA Australia with regards to Fiji’s curriculum development.

Meanwhile, the CPA Fiji congress  will commence on September 14 -15 and is expected to host about 600 representatives, with highly-qualified speakers, both internationally and locally.

It is being held at Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort on Yanuca Island, Cuvu.

CPA Australia has about 160,000 members in 118 different countries.

The Fiji branch has more than 400 members and attracts more every year.
