Mr. Maw Than, Union Auditor General from the Supreme Audit Institution (SAI) of Myanmar, alongside the Myanmar Institute of Certified Public Accountants representatives, attended the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) International Conference on Regulation of the Accountancy Profession held in London, United Kingdom, October 5-6, 2017.

The conference provided a forum for discussions on the accountancy profession in general, as well as reviews of regulatory models used around the world, oversight, the importance of good governance, quality assurance, investigation and discipline, and systems designed to prevent misleading or incomplete financial reporting.
