The Institute of Chartered Accountants Ghana (ICAG) has inducted 250 newly qualified accounting professionals into the Institute.
The event, which formally introduced the newly trained accountants into ICAG after their requisite years of work experience and training, forms part of events earmarked to induct the first batch for the year 2018.
Speaking at the event, ICAG’s President, Mr. Christian Sottie, admonished the inductees to exercise a high level of professionalism to impact on their various organizations.
“It is a known fact that everyone looks up to the accountant for the prudent financial management of any company and that is why it has become necessary for all organizations to employ the services of qualified accountants to do the job,” he said.
Mr. Sottie explained that ICAG’s role in the training of accountants has become more relevant than before, considering the fact that the country, now than before, requires professionals in the field to play significant roles in the economic restructuring agenda by government.
Deputy Finance Minister, Ms. Abena Osei-Asare, who was the guest of honour, entreated the inductees to always portray positive image of ICAG and the accounting profession through exceptional competencies on the job.
“At this point, I wish to urge you to desire to be exceptional in your profession by frequently upgrading your skills and competencies in order to be relevant in the job market,” she advised.
