The Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Ireland (CPA Ireland) and the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN), entered into a mutual recognition agreement (MRA) in June 2015. The agreement offers qualified members of each body to become a member of the other body, and to enjoy the benefits which each organisation offers.
