WCOA 2010 Presentation in Istanbul
After winning the bid for the 18th World Congress of Accountants (WCOA) which
will be held in Kuala Lumpur in 2010 and setting up a steering committee to lead
this process, the Institute sent a delegation to attend the 17th World Congress
of Accountants which was held in Istanbul, Turkey in November last year.
At the closing of the congress, its organising committee chairman Y.C. Lee
addressed the delegates at the conference, telling them what to expect at the
next conference. A welcome message featuring the Malaysian Prime Minister YB Dato'
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was also featured during the event. Apart from that, MIA
and Tourism Malaysia set-up a booth at the congress’s exhibition hall to promote
the World Congress 2010 and Malaysia to the international audiences gathered
there at the time.
