Universiti Teknologi MARA, Rangsit University and Chullalongkorn University are all institutional members of the Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association (APMAA) which is based in Japan. Two ARI researchers, Prof Dr Normah Omar and Associate Professor Dr Zuraidah Mohd Sanusi were invited by the Dean, Faculty of Accountancy, Chullalongkorn Business School Professor Dr Kanibhatti Nitirojntanad to attend a research meeting. The meeting which was held at the Chullalongkorn Business School, were also attended by Dr Nimnuan Visedsun and Dr Kathy Terdpaopong. The group discussed an initial topic of "management accounting control system" which would be initially carried out by the three universities and hopefully, some initial findings can be presented at the forthcoming APMAA Conference this October in Taipei Taiwan. Further deliberation with other member countries of APMAA will be made in Taipei this year. The group hopes to source international research funding.
