During the meeting, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh praised the efforts of ASCA’s Administrative Board members, especially the founders, who have been supporting it for 37 years in developing its business and activities. Moreover, ASCA has been the only association in the region that offers capacity building, educational and training in the field of accounting since 1986.


Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh also emphasized ASCA's continuous endeavor to develop accounting, management and the relevant disciplines, praising the level ASCA has achieved, and the efforts that the members of the administrative body, staff, and the board of directors have exerted.


On the other hand, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh lauded the positive outcomes that ASCA has accomplished during the year 2021, as well as its role in facilitating, developing and financing a wide range of translated materials issued by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC).


The Executive Director of ASCA, Mr. Salem Al-Ouri, presented the report of the Administrative Board that addresses ASCA’s accomplishments for the year ending December 31, 2021, as well as its future plans. The report further explains ASCA’s membership privileges and the most important professional publications that have been translated, printed and published, including the monthly professional journal.



Al-Ouri emphasized that ASCA is exerting the utmost efforts to overcome all the obstacles the world is experiencing, to avoid the recession that befell many educational and professional institutions, due to their inability to adapt to the evolving global landscape.


Regarding training and qualification, the report indicated that the training courses were conducted using several methods; digital and face-to-face, both at the level of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Arab countries. The report also indicated that work is underway to enhance cooperation to conclude joint agreements between a group of authorities inside and outside the Kingdom.


It is worth mentioning that ASCA always seeks to develop accounting and management as well as the relevant disciplines and principles that apply to all or some professional services. It also seeks to develop the level of competence, practice, and behavior to raise the bar of professional practices through its interest in accounting publications, and by following the most recent trends in accounting and auditing.
