    Presidential Message

    Dear members and students of CIMA Hong Kong Division

    It is with great pleasure that I write to you during the first week of my Presidency of the Hong Kong Division.

    I would like to thank Peter Choy FCMA for his third term as President from 2006 - 2007. During Peter’s Presidency CIMA has achieved many milestones including a strong relationship with HKICPA and other professional bodies in Hong Kong. During the year CIMA Hong Kong Council was invited by HKSAR to take part in two Trade Missions to Mainland China. Both of these missions are reported on in this newsletter. Through these missions CIMA members have had the opportunity to network with Mainland Chinese companies, government departments and Universities with the view to promoting CIMA.

    I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Kenneth Chan FCMA as area representative to CIMA Council in London and his recent re-election to this position. Kenneth has provided the CIMA Council with up-to-date strategy information from the Council and has taken the lead role in the preparation of a proposal for a new regional structure.

    During my term as President I aim to:

    • Provide membership service to all members in Hong Kong by promoting continuing professional development that supports members in enhancing their professional competence and also develop a technical agenda which ensures that the CIMA voice is heard in all spheres of influence, and which supports members in their career development.

    • Develop strategies of student recruitment and support, especially in Tertiary Education Institutes through providing a recruitment support framework in partnership with employers and educationalists that promotes and encourages competent students to become members. Also encourage student enrolment at tertiary education institutes through scholarships and course subsidies.

    • Enhance the CIMA brand. CIMA members are highly regarded for their management and accounting competence and professional standards and it is of great importance that we uphold this reputation. Through the Trade Missions held in Mainland China last year CIMA has successfully made connections with Mainland Chinese companies and organizations. In the year ahead we will continue along this line to promote our image and build on our recognition as the authoritative voice on financial and business management issues in the region.

    Last but not least I must emphasize that the success of the Hong Kong Division is very much dependant on the contribution from all CIMA members and therefore I will strive to strengthen communication among all members throughout my term.

    Hong Kong Division is very well positioned for the future and I look forward to working closely with the divisional staff, council members, committees and all CIMA members to take our success to the next level.

    Yours sincerely

    Michael Chan FCMA President, CIMA Hong Kong Division
