The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) approved membership for 32 Ethiopian accountants, during a ceremony held at the Sheraton Addis Hotel on November 29. This allows the accountants to work for international and large Ethiopian companies. To join they had to pass 14 professional exams, complete an online ethics module, and obtain 36 months of supervised, practical working experience. Anthony Harbison, ACCA president said “getting ACCA membership allows the accountants to help Ethiopian businesses compete on the global stage and attracts investment.’’
Netsanet Tsegaw, Head of ACCA Ethiopia added that their skills will help grow Ethiopia’s financial sector. Established 110 years ago, ACCA currently has 170,000 members in 180 countries. This includes 375 in Ethiopia.
