The event was organized at the Surat International Exhibition and Convention Center (SIECC) at Sarsana where the leading CAs from the city remained present.
Dinesh Navadia, president of SGCCI said, “CAs have been playing an important role in maintaining accounts of traders and industrialists. Surat’s diamond industry is 100% export oriented business and CAs have a big role to play”
