The biggest adventure for the ACCA Singapore team at the start of this year was a move from our home in Orchard to the financial hub of the island –Raffles Place, closer to some of our members and partners.

ACCA international office in Singapore was officially opened on 3rd May, by His Excellency, Mr Scott Wightman British High Commissioner to Singapore in the presence of over 50 guests from the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC), the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants, Institute of Internal Auditors, the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), approved employers, education institutions and approved learning providers.

We had Helen Brand, our Chief Executive of ACCA; Chaly Mah, Chairman of SAC; Belinda Young, ACCA Council Member and Amos Ng, Chairman of the ACCA Singapore Network Panel joined His Excellency in commemorating the occasion by signing off on a blockchain – timestamping it permanently.

The new office aims to drive innovation in the accountancy sectors in Singapore, Asia Pacific and Emerging Markets such as Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar, India, Russia and Latin America.

“I am immensely proud of the contribution ACCA members have consistently made over the past eight decades to cement the reputation of Singapore as a global financial centre. It’s wonderful for ACCA to be at the very heart of this amazing city and in this fantastic space” says Helen in her welcome address. We could not agree more!

A collective of young ACCA members (our energetic Generation Next leaders) took time to sit down with Helen and Belinda to share their plans about member-for-member initiatives and what aspirations they have for ACCA for the year. The session was very well received and we will keep you posted on the next development from our young ACCA members!

 

 

We hope that in our new home we can acknowledge and appreciate our rich 81 year history being here in Singapore, while also looking to our future vision. We will be here to support creating a future for our partners and members whom we serve.
