Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) will host the 21st World Congress of Accountants (WCOA) from November 18 to 21 at Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai for the first time in 118 years of its existence, ICAI President Debashis Mitra said on Saturday.
About 6000 top accountants from 130 countries will participate in the programme physically, while 10,000 are expected to join in virtually.
“It is a proud moment for ICAI that it has been able to host the World Congress for the first time in 118 years of its existence. We were successful in outbidding France in this round,” Mitra said.
The WCOA, a forum for thought leadership and global exchange of views, is held every four years since it started in 1904.
The theme this time would be `Building Trust Enabling Sustainability’.
