CIMA Malaysia woos MIA with ethics card. (Institute News).

Stepping up its efforts to woo members of the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) to pursue the CIMA qualification, CIMA Malaysia Division held the second launch of its special exemptions for MIA members in Sarawak, Malaysia. The deputy chief minister of Sarawak, Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr George Chan, who is also the minister of finance and public utilities and minister of industrial development, officiated. He urged accountants to resist any temptation to compromise their ethics. "Those who can preserve their ethical standards are the ones who can last," he said, adding that this was in line with the government's emphasis on good corporate governance.

Dato' Lee Ow Kim, president of CIMA Malaysia Division, said that members of MIA who had an honours degree from recognised local universities were eligible to receive an exemption of 13 papers from the CIMA exam. "CIMA is continuously reconfiguring itself so that it delivers a relevant and differentiated qualification, which is employer-focused. We aim to be the first choice of employers in the qualification and development of professional accountants in business," he said.

* Four public listed companies have received accreditation from CIMA Malaysia Division as training partners. Representatives from Renong Berhad, Time Engineering Berhad and Tenaga Nasional Berhad received their Training Through Partnership (TTP) certificates from Lee Yee Chong, first vice-president of CIMA Malaysia Division (pictured with representatives, above left), during an employers' luncheon talk in Kuala Lumpur. The fourth recipient was Intria Berhad.
