WE'RE CELEBRATING OUR 47th Year Anniversary, April 28, 2018
On April 28, 1971, delegates from 9 Asian countries - Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand, and South Vietnam came to Seoul, Korea to fulfill an individual collective dream - to cooperate with neighbors for the good of all. The representatives convened to assist and support the Planning Committee in developing the necessary requisites towards the formation of the confederation - an alliance of actual credit union centers leagues, federations of Asian countries with the mission to assist members to organize, expand, improve and integrate credit unions so they can fulfill their potential as effective instruments for the development of people in Asia. The Asian Confederation of Credit Unions or ACCU for short was officially formed.
We sincerely thank you - our members for supporting ACCU and consistently keeping and protecting the solidarity of the Asian credit union movement. Our services has evolved over time to suit the needs and current challenges of credit unions. It happened because of you working cooperatively with us.
Above all, we pay tribute to the pioneers who today, 47 years ago took part in founding ACCU in Seoul, Korea. Our sincere thanks goes to our development partners for providing us both financial and technical support allowing ACCU to play an important role in strengthening and promoting credit unions in Asia.
We look forward to celebrating our golden anniversary three years from now.
