Aproximately 400 del­egates will attend the Fiji Institute of Accountants 2018 Congress which begins tomorrow.

The theme for the congress is “Growth Through Syner­gy: Collaboration, Innova­tion and Resilience”

The FIA 2018 Congress is jointly sponsored by Vodafone Fiji and Westpac Banking Corporation at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa in Yanuca Island.

It ends on Saturday.

With the theme “Growth Through Synergy: Collabo­ration, Innovation and Re­silience” the Congress will cover three main thematic areas in each session: Grow­ing your Business through Collaboration, Unleashing Fiji’s Potential through In­novation and Resilience in Today’s Business Environ­ment.

The 46th FIA Congress will feature many high cali­bre and respected experts including the President Major General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote who will officiate the opening of the Congress on tomorrow.

The President of Inter­national Federation of Ac­countants Rachel Grimes is also a speaker along with George Fonua, Glyn Lewis, Jane Rushton, Rob Cromb, Marty Wilson, Murray Altham and Debbie Mayo-Smith.

FIA Congress organising committee chair Rajeshwar Singh said: “There has been a lot of work involved over the last 12 months and the Organising Committee has been working tirelessly to ensure that we deliver.

“In this regard the spon­sors have been very sup­portive to what we are try­ing to achieve and for this we are very grateful.”

FIA president Finau Nag­era added that Vodafone and Westpac have supported the Congress since 1997 either individually as major spon­sors or support sponsors.

“The co-sponsorship be­tween FIA, Vodafone and Westpac began in 2013,” Ms Nagera said.

“They have assisted finan­cially and provided admin­istrative and logistical sup­port.

“We are also fortunate to have many support spon­sors that contribute exten­sively toward the prepa­rations. The collaborated efforts of the sponsors and the organising committee are critical to the delivery of the Congress,” she said.

FIA acknowledges all its support sponsors: Sun In­surance, Carpenter Motors, Kontiki Finance, CA ANZ, British American Tobacco, Marsh, Coca Cola, Datec, Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa, Fiji Water and Pure Fiji.
