President’s Communication : July 2020
Dear Fellow Members and colleagues
Assalamu Alaikum, Greetings to you all,
The pandemic of Covid-19 has passed about four months in our country. Given the changed style of conferences and discussions now in vogue, the traditional gathering of people might not eventually be as before. Gradually we will have to learn to adapt and respond to the new normal. Amidst the situation, we are trying to continue all the activities of the institute as smoothly as possible.
My dear fraternity, we are continuing our works through digital platform during this times. The month of July witnessed a number of important virtual CPD programs where the online participation of Members was encouraging. We also held good number of council meeting, EC meeting and other committee meetings through online Zoom App. I must say we could compensate the slow progress that the previous months witnessed because of COVID 19.
International Webinar on Role of Chartered Accountants in Economic Recovery and Promoting Cross-Border Investments' was organised on 11 July 2020 through zoom video conference. Mr. Salman F Rahman MP, Private Sector Industry and Investment Adviser to the Honorable Prime Minister of GoB attended the conference as the Chief Guest. Mr. Manil Jaysinghe FCA, President of CA Sri Lanka was present as special guest and Dr. In-Ki Joo, President of IFAC was present as guest of honour. Mr. Robert Hodgkinson FCA, Executive Director, Technical at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), UK presented the keynote paper.
