The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has continued to increase its global membership, it has been reported.
ACCA, which has developed a network of 83 offices and centres and established more than 70 global accountancy partnerships, has seen its member base swell to 147,000.
This represents a five per cent rise on the 140,000 full members achieved in 2009.
Some 92,642 members are based in Europe and the Americas, while 42,252 are based in Asia Pacific, 9,132 in Sub-Saharan Africa and 3,239 in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
Meanwhile, ACCA's worldwide student base has reached 424,000 compared with 404,000 this time last year.
Helen Brand, chief executive of ACCA, said she was pleased to see the organisation making progress towards achieving its strategic vision.
"Our investment in aligning our organisation to the needs of employers and transforming our underlying service delivery is essential to the delivery of [our] strategy," she stated.
"I am very satisfied to see that employers see the benefits in working with ACCA and its global membership base. This establishes a promising platform for our development in 2011-12."
Ms Brand commented that professional accountancy adds value to business on a global basis, particularly at a time of continuing economic instability.
"ACCA has worked against the backdrop of unprecedented inquiries into the role of auditors and the value the profession brings to business," she noted.
"I believe this is a time of great opportunity for the accountancy profession and we must work harder than ever to retain trust and show how we bring public value."
