Institute of Cost and Management Accountants of Pakistan (ICMAP) has registered its second foreign branch office in the United Arab Emirates.
While addressing the Institute’s members, affiliates and students on September 19, the President ICMAP Zia ul Mustafa said that this registration of UAE Foreign Branch Office is a continuation of National Council efforts as ICMA Pakistan registered its first Foreign Branch Office in 2014 in the United Kingdom. National Council will continue its efforts in this direction as we aspire to be a Global Professional Accountancy Organisation and register more branch offices to assist our members, affiliates and students based in 40 countries outside Pakistan with an aim to add value to economies and assist national human resource to work in overseas markets.
He added that UAE is one of the key destinations in the international employment market. The Government of UAE is investing heavily to further develop the region over the coming years. It is considered as a strategic economic hub and a stepping stone for the entities that are aspiring to be global. With more than 1/3rd of institute’s overseas members’ population based in the UAE, through this initiative, we will be able to provide ready support needed by members, affiliates and students in the gulf region. The Institute through this registration will be working on enhancing employment opportunities, networking, better recognition in UAE and will play an active role in capacity building of its fraternity through more frequent continuous professional development activities. This registration will also result in ease for members, affiliates and students based in UAE, President ICMAP informed.
