The BDO Global Audit and Assurance team chose Malta as the destination for its latest global meeting earlier this month, visiting BDO Malta to join in the 45th anniversary celebrations of the Firm since its establishment in Malta.

The visiting party was welcomed at the BDO Malta offices on Monday 17 April by BDO Malta Founder and Senior Managing Partner John Attard, CEO and Partner Mark Attard and Audit Partners Sam Spiridonov and Andrew Zarb Cousin.

Opening the meeting on Tuesday 18 April, Mark Attard presented a general update about the Firm’s performance and history in the context of Malta’s changing business, fiscal and economic landscape. Mr Spiridonov offered an overview of BDO Malta’s audit practice coupled with some market insights, the Firm’s quality management systems and its risk-based approach. 

“We are honoured that BDO selected Malta as the location for its Audit and Assurance business stream global meeting, especially as we celebrate our 45th anniversary this year,” says Mark Attard. “This was an opportunity to spotlight some of our many accomplishments through the years, from our humble beginnings in 1978 to today, with a growing team of 120 people.”
