Jordan firm seals co-op deal with Russell Bedford
Amman, February 19, 2013
Talal Abu-Ghazaleh & Company International (TAGI), a professional services and education group based in Jordan, has renewed its co-operation agreement with global accounting and audit network, Russell Bedford International.
The new alliance ensures enhanced service delivery in all major markets worldwide, remarked chairman Dr Talal Abu-Ghazaleh after signing the agreement with Geoff Goodyear, the chairman of Russell Bedford International.
Updating their existing co-operation agreement, this new deal will further enhance both groups’ capabilities in supporting international organisations, multilateral agencies, and national governments in their respective markets, and in together pursuing major new business and tender opportunities worldwide.
As per the terms of the agreement, TAGI, which has 73 offices and a leading market presence in Asia and Africa, will leverage Russell Bedford’s 120 member and correspondent firms and 280 offices in its key markets in Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific.
“We have been delivering highly complex assignments in some of the world’s most challenging environments for more than 40 years. Russell Bedford’s experience in the emerging markets matches our own here – experience which makes them the ideal partner with whom to expand our services beyond the Arab World,” stated Dr Abu-Ghazaleh.
Goodyear expressed delight at the renewed relationship with TAGI. "Closer co-operation will allow us to jointly exploit our respective connections and skills to enlarge the auditing and consulting opportunities for both organisations, particularly in the aid-funded international development sector," he stated.
Both groups are full members of the IFAC Forum of Firms, the association of international audit networks whose goal is to promote consistent and high quality standards of financial reporting and auditing practices worldwide.-TradeArabia News Service
