It's a tremendous honour for me to be the head in mainland China where ACCA has grown into one of the most influential global professional accountancy bodies in the region.
'I look forward to building a closer and mutual relationship with our partners, including the government, the local accountancy body and regulators, employers, universities, learning providers, and not to mention our established members and students, to continue adding value to the entire profession and the business community at large.'
