PwC Vietnam and Smart Train have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to take their partnership to the next level. The collaboration aims to create an environment for business interaction, information sharing, professional training, and knowledge exchange among PwC and Smart Train’s broad networks of business leaders and experts in finance, accounting, governance, and management.

The signing ceremony was attended by Ms. Le Thi Tuyet Nhung, Deputy Head of the Accounting and Auditing Regulations Department at the Ministry of Finance, and representatives from the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange (HSX), the Ho Chi Minh City Accountants Association (HAA), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the Vietnam Banks Association (VNBA), and CPA Australia.

As Vietnamese companies gradually approach global norms and standards in professionalism and transparency, raising corporate governance capacity has become an essential requirement for all business leaders.

Directors and senior management teams need to update their knowledge and understanding of best practices in corporate governance, management accounting, financial accounting, and risk control.

As the world’s leading provider of auditing and consulting services, PwC regularly contributes expert advice at major events and specialized seminars in corporate governance, finance, risk, and cyber security, etc.

PwC has also collaborated with State management bodies in building legal frameworks, contributing many crucial initiatives to enhance corporate governance and improve quality in accounting, financial management, risk management, auditing, and internal auditing. “The partnership between PwC Vietnam and Smart Train plays an important role in creating more opportunities and an environment for interaction among businesses and between enterprises and leading experts in the PwC network,” said Mr. Hoang Duc Hung, Partner and Vietnam Markets Leader at PwC Vietnam.

“By organizing seminars and conferences with practical topics, we hope to create a hub for information sharing, professional training, and the exchange of expertise between local and international professionals in governance, accounting and auditing on one side, and the board of directors and management team of companies on the other side,” Mr. Pham Ngoc Hoang Thanh, Managing Director of Smart Train, told the signing ceremony.

Ms. Nhung said it is essential to raise awareness about and compliance by businesses with requirements and regulations of State management bodies in governance, finance, accounting, auditing, risk, and control. The collaboration of professional firms such as PwC and Smart Train will contribute to promoting awareness in the business community and among business leaders and support regulatory agencies in managing and facilitating businesses.

Established in 2009, Smart Train is a leading training organization delivering international accounting and finance training programs such as ACCA, CMA, CIA, CFA, and DipIFR, as well as corporate training courses. It is an officially authorized training partner of ACCA, The Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), and the CFA Institute.
