DAR ES SALAAM; Minister of State for the President's Office, Public Service Management and Good Governance, George Simbachawene urged accountants and auditors in Tanzania to continue to meet the goals based on ethics, discipline and honesty in working and promoting professionalism in the country.

He made the remarks during the annual meeting of the Tanzania Board of Accountants and Auditors (NBAA) held in Dar es Salaam, where more than 2000,<> accountants and auditors from across the country have met to discuss various aspects of their profession.

The NBAA Board Chair, Prof. Sylivia Temu, said the poor performance of students in maths in Form 4 is causing it to undermine the profession in the absence of new accountants.

"The growth of the profession is more dependent on graduating students, so not doing well in maths is increasingly affecting our profession, so it is important that the government through the Ministry of Education ensure they end the problem," Prof. Sylivia Temu said.

The CEO of NBAA, CPA Pius Words, said the use of Tehama is considered of great importance to accountants in the country to keep pace with the pace of digital performance.
