GGI in cooperation with the Iacocca Institute, Office of International Affairs at Lehigh University Pennsylvania, USA, sponsors 5 candidates from GGI member firms to participate in the highly acclaimed leadership program – Global Village on the Move (GVotM) Shanghai 2013. To promote diversity, one candidate was selected from each of GGI’s 5 geographical regions. The application process focused on examining the candidate’s work experience, skills, personal values, motivation as well as identifying the benefits the candidate hoped to derive by attending and contributing to the program. We were pleased to receive so many applications. The selection process was conducted by the GGI Executive Management and the GGI Executive Committee. From all of the applications received, choosing only 5 candidates was an extremely difficult task as all of the applicants had outstanding qualifications, both professionally and personally. GGI would like to thank all of them and their respective firms for participating in this initiative and congratulate the five candidates selected.
Through our membership within GGI's multi-disciplinary network of accountants, lawyers and consultants, we have succeeded in finding better ways to satisfy the diverse set of customers' needs. This in itself has created immense value for our clients and an excellent opportunity for our firm.

GGI is a professionally managed organization. This marks a huge difference from self-regulating (voluntarily managed) networks, and as such, the organization enjoys continuous and consistent growth. All new members are visited and very carefully selected. In addition to the quality criteria, I also value the efficient, personal and prompt quality service provided by GGI Head Office.

Around the world, GGI members are active in various practice groups. I have the pleasure of chairing the International Tax Practice Group, which consists of experts in international taxation from many different countries. We regularly exchange knowledge and experiences, stay up-to-date with the latest international information and developments, and international tax structures.
Seiichi Yoshikawa, Koga & Partners, Japan
I strongly believe that only a network of genuinely independent member firms is able to meet the many challenges faced by businesses in today's expanding markets. Although each member firm is different and independent, the same high quality standards apply to each.
Pavel Timokhin, Yakovlev & Partners Law Office, Russia
