The Institute of Chartered Accountant of Sierra Leone (ICASL) will be hosting the ninth Congress of the Association of Accountancy Bodies in West Africa from April 21st to April 24th, 2010 at the Bintumani Hotel, Aberdeen in Freetown.

The President of ICASL, Madam Marjorie Hedd said, the Association of Accountancy Bodies in West African was launched in 1982 with the aim of bringing together Institutes and Associations of Accountants in the West Africa.

She disclosed that presently the Association has 15 countries as registered members; 5 English speaking, 9 French speaking and 1 Portuguese speaking. The 15 members she stated are: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote dIvoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo.

The Congress is held once every three years, the last congress, the 8th was held 2007 in Benin. Sierra Leone hosted it in 1996 and has been privileged to host it once more this year.

She further said, the Congress is a high profile event for professional accountants which offers practicing accountants a forum to share experience and exchange views on the current state of the profession in the sub-region with a view to enhance the technical competence and ethical standards of members for effective service delivery by adopting best practices in the public interest, as well as contributing to the development and sustainability of the regional economics.

It also offers opportunities to strengthen and consolidate professional accounting and auditing standards and practices.

Madam Hedd continued that the theme for this years congress is: The Accountant In Global Economic Recovery".

In her conclusion Madam Marjorie Hedd noted that, the Congress will offer opportunities for economists, accountants, and public officials to discuss issues in the economic recovery process, investment, and economic development in general.
