The UK-based Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) launched the ‘ACCA Teach Network’ program in Vietnam on May 6, with an aim to create closer relations among college teachers of finance and accounting nationwide, financial experts and financial trainers from around the world.
“We hope that this will be an effective bridge between the business community and teachers and scientists,” Mr. Tay Kay Luan, ACCA head in Southeast Asia and Australia, said at a program launch in Ho Chi Minh City.

According to him, the program is introduced in Vietnam for the first time following success stories in regional countries.
ACCA says the key reason for it to bring the program to Vietnam is college teachers here need more training and more opportunities to develop their skills. And the organization plans to hold two or three workshops annually to share experience with Vietnamese teachers.
The launch was held during an ACCA seminar called ‘integrated financial statement’, attended by HCM City college teachers, and representatives of the Association of Certified Public Accountants of Vietnam, and the Association of Accountants and Auditors of Vietnam.
The workshop provided the participants a view of integrated financial reports associated with international financial reporting standards.
