France Supports Global Credential


The growing number of accountancy organizations that are pursuing the establishment of a global professional business designation now includes France, the second European nation to join the group.

Representatives from Australia, Canada, Italy, New Zealand and the United States already serve on the committee. More information is available at http://globalcredential.aicpa.org .
