Ms. Estelita C. Aguirre, President of ASEAN Federation of Accountants (AFA), talks to JICPA about AFA and its recent activities, as well as the new Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) due to be signed in August.


AFA President Aguirre explains that she is hopeful for the progress to be made in the accountancy system of AFA member bodies, as the implementation of the new MRA will accelerate efforts for closing the gaps in the level of accountancy development in ASEAN and motivate all accountants to upgrade the quality of their practice and keep up with international standards to be globally competitive.
