The KPMG’s Middle East & South Asia (MESA) Regional Office said this week that its 10th Middle East & South Asia Partners’ Conference will be held in Colombo next month which would include a visit by KPMG’s Global Chairman Michael Andrew, his first to the island.

In a statement, routed through the Colombo office, Hossam Amin Fahmy, Chief Operating Officer of KPMG’s MESA Regional Office said the Partners’ Conference is a key event in the firm’s calendar and is expected to bring together over 100 Partners from KPMG offices in 15 countries.

Several members of KPMG’s Global Leadership team will also attend the conference to discuss regional strategy, industry developments and the future direction of the member firms in the region.
“We are also very pleased to announce that KPMG’s Global Chairman, Mr. Michael Andrew will attend the event in his first visit to both Sri Lanka and the MESA Region since his appointment as the Global Chairman of KPMG in October this year,” Mr. Fahmy added. In addition, key delegates attending the conference includes Rolf Nonnenmacher, Chairman of KPMG’s Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (EMA) region, Jean-Paul Thill, Chief Executive Officer of KPMG’s EMA region and Jamal Fakhro, Chairman of KPMG’s Middle East & South Asia Region.

Mr. Fahmy said Sri Lanka has become one of the organisation’s key markets. “We have seen strong economic growth in the region which was also relatively resilient to the global financial crisis. We believe that Sri Lanka could emerge to become a key trading hub and a popular tourist destination.”
