The Cabinet also approved a fresh Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ).

The engagement between the two institutes is expected to result in greater employment opportunities for Indian chartered accountants and also greater remittances back to India.
