A LARGE PART of the PKF network in China will join the local BDO firm.
Some 350 PKF staff will join BDO Li Xin, giving the firm strength in the state-owned Assets Supervision & Administrative Committee (SASAC) and the National Audit Office (NAO).
The move follows the merger agreement between BDO and PKF in the UK, as well as a merger of the two firms on the Australian east coast.
Jiandi Zhu, managing partner of BDO in China and recently appointed to the BDO global board, said: “For BDO China, local market knowledge, industry expertise and technical skills form the basis of the commercially astute and robust opinions we give to our clients.
“The combined expertise of our partners and staff with state-owned enterprises (SOEs), as well as with listed companies – including H-share businesses – will build upon our approach as well as our position in these market segments.”
