We extended a warm welcome to the delegation of Beijing Institute of Certified Public Accountants (BICPA) and 5 large Mainland accounting firms.
Led by the President of BICPA Mr Li Yuguo, the delegation, visited Hong Kong during 25-29 March 2019, and a cooperation signing ceremony for the Mainland and Hong Kong accounting firms was held to facilitate better development of the accounting industry in the two regions. The delegation consisted of 5 representatives from BICPA and the Managing Partners of 5 large Mainland accounting firms including the Managing Partner of Ruihua CPAs Mr Liu Guibin, and the Managing Partners of Bakertilly, ShineWing, Jonten CPAs, and Daxin CPAs.
The delegation visited our firm on 26 March 2019. In our welcome speech, our Chairman and CEO Mr Charles Chan thanked BICPA for organizing this event, which would create a profound and positive impact on the accounting industry in the Mainland and Hong Kong. He expressed that the rapid development of the Chinese economy, together with the “Belt and Road” and “Greater Bay Area” Initiatives would increase the demands for accounting services, thus creating more cooperation opportunities for the accounting firms. Mr Chan also remarked that the delegation and the signing ceremony would set a milestone for the cooperation between the two regions.
We hosted a luncheon for the delegates on the same day, where our Chairman Mr Chan, our Partners Ms Pammy Fung, Mr Alex Yau, Mr George Lam and Mr Cyrus Fong exchanged their views with the delegates on the development of the accounting industry.
On 28 March, we took part in the Signing Ceremony of “Cooperation Agreement among Beijing and HK Accounting Firms Serving the Belt and Road Developments” hosted by BICPA.
