Vietnamese, US associations sign management accounting deal

Hanoi, April 15 (VNA) – The US Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) and the Vietnam Association of Accountants and Auditors (VAA) have signed a cooperation agreement on management accounting.

Speaking at the signing ceremony in Hanoi on April 15, VAA President Dang Van Thanh stressed the need to develop management accounting in the growing market economy as it is not really popular in Vietnam.

Therefore, the agreement aims to update knowledge and share experience in management accounting for those working in the field.

The IMA will help VAA members to improve their skills in order to gain the US’s Certified Management Accountant certification (CMA).

This is the first agreement inked by the VAA with a US accountant association.

The IMA is a global prestigious association on management accounting and financial management with over 85,000 members recognised in more than 140 countries.
