ACCA audit tour

Three roundtables, hosted by ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), will be held in Barbados (April 16), Trinidad ( April 17) and Jamaica (April 19) and will all be done in participation with the national institutes in those countries, namely, ICAB (the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Barbados), ICATT (the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Trinidad and Tobago) and ICAJ (the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Jamaica).

The audit tour aims to let ACCA's members and regional audit professionals give their opinions on the future of the audit profession.

Dean Westcott, president at ACCA, said: "We are keen to ensure the voice our members and the wider Caribbean profession is heard in the increasingly global debate on the future of audit.

Brenda Lee Tang, head of ACCA Caribbean, said: "One of our Global Forums is dedicated to audit, which brings together experts from around the world to discuss issues relating to this subject matter. This shows that ACCA values audit immensely, in fact we see it as a vital function to the world of finance."
