Speaking during the cheque presentation, TNM’s Chief Finance Officer Peter Kadzitche said TNM Plc is a long-term partner of the ICAM, which has the critical role of safeguarding the accountancy profession.
He said accountancy profession is a critical input in economic development growth efforts in Malawi.
“As a truly Malawian company, we felt obliged to support this conference because TNM appreciates and values the role ICAM plays in enhancing financial literacy and ethical & professional conduct which in turn fosters economic growth of the country,” said Kadzitche.
Kadzitche observed that apart from engineers, accountants constitute a big population of TNM’s workforce, hence one of the key drivers to the business.
“TNM always believes that a gathering like the ICAM annual conference provides a platform for professionals to discuss issues for the common good of our business and economic growth for Malawi and by contributing towards the conference we are supporting the nation to have an accountable society. We are among companies, which employ large number of accountants,” he said.
