Myanmar CPAs visit Tokyo as part of capital market training program of JICPA-MICPA-DMJF
For the week of 10th, April, 2017, three CPAs from Myanmar Institute of CPAs (MICPA) visited Tokyo as part of capital market training program, accompanied by Mr. U Maw Than, Union Auditor General. Pursuant to the MoU signed by JICPA, MICPA, and Daiwa-Myanmar-Japan-Foundation (DMJF), this program has been established for Myanmar CPAs to enhance their understanding on the rules and operations of capital markets and role of CPAs in them with other related topics.
A variety of topics were covered during the week-long training, including, for example, the development of audit firms in Japan, current trend of governance, risk management and auditor independence. At their visit to JICPA, an overview of quality control review system was provided to contribute to their further understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the accountancy profession in Japan for the healthy functioning of the capital markets. The training also included visits to relevant stakeholders in Tokyo, such as audit firms, Financial Services Agency, Japan Stock Exchange and Asia-Oceania Office of the IFRS Foundation.
JICPA hopes to keep strengthening ties with MICPA and continue to support the development of the CPA profession and capital markets in Myanmar.
