The MoU was signed this morning in Taipei by Mr Charles Chen, Chairman of the National Federation of CPA Associations, on behalf of Taiwan accounting bodies, and Mr Jeff Hughes, Chief Operating Officer of CPA Australia.

The MoU will enable CPA Australia and Taiwan accounting bodies to further support each other in the areas of training and continual professional development of members in accounting and related areas. The MoU also forms a strong foundation for the mutual recognition of members in later discussions.

Mr Hughes welcomed the opportunity to partner with Taiwan accounting bodies and acknowledged the positive impact the MoU will have on accounting professionals in Taiwan and Australia. "Since 2013, Taiwan has adopted the International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) to enable seamless integration with the international financial system. CPA Australia is looking forward to collaborating with Taiwan accounting bodies and supporting further training and talent development for accounting professionals in Taiwan," Mr Hughes said.

Mr Chen said the collaboration between Taiwan accounting bodies and CPA Australia would elevate the international competitiveness of accounting professionals in Taiwan. "As Taiwan plays a more active role in the global economy, it will become increasingly important for accounting bodies in Taiwan to deepen their cooperation with global accounting bodies," said Mr Chen. "I look forward to working with CPA Australia to advance the accounting profession in Taiwan and Australia."
