Permanent secretary said: “CAA has managed to take chartered accountancy profession to the previously marginalised sections of our society and in the process changing lives in ways never seen before.”
He hailed the CAA for taking it upon themselves to be the torchbearers in a field that traditionally was preserved for the few.
Also he noted that the local trained chartered accountants are of good quality and they are gracing many boardrooms of prestigious corporates around the globe.
“This brings with it a significant contribution to the GDP as diaspora remittances are a major source of foreign currency as students will not have to import the same service form another country” he said.
The training of Accountants is hard as they debit away while the training of chartered accountants must be very taxing.
“Lawyers call themselves learned colleagues and don’t call yourselves learned” he added.
