PV Desk : President M Abdul Hamid today asked the chartered accountants to play a responsible role in ensuring transparency and accountability of accounts in public and private sectors.

“Most of the South Asian countries have huge potential manpower . . . so the professionals, like you, should play a collective role to give the ongoing development in this region a sustainable look,” he said.

The head of the state said this while opening the South Asian Federation of Accountants (SAFA) International Conference-2019, organized by Institute of Chartered Accountants of Bangladesh (ICAB) at a hotel in the city this afternoon.

Referring to the role of chartered accountants to the country’s overall advancement, the President said their (CAs) role should be for the betterment of combined interests and welfare not for merely the interest of any individual or institution.
