ECONOMICS REPORT - Volunteer Experts Help Businesses in Developing Economies
Thu, 20 Dec 2007
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report.
经济报道――志愿者专家帮助发展中国家的公司。
2007年12月20日,星期四。
这是VOA特别英语的经济报道。
Abe Mirza is an American, fifty-nine years old and retired. He was trained as an accountant. In fact, he has three degrees in financial record keeping. And he has over twenty years of experience as a business executive.
After four years of retirement, he decided that it was time to give something back.
Abe Mirza是美国人,59岁,已退休。他受训为会计师。事实上,他在财务记帐方面有三个学位,并且具有20多年公司高管的经验。
退休4年之后,他决定该是回报的时候了。
On the Internet, he found an economic development organization, the International Executive Service Corps. This private, nonprofit group links volunteer experts and paid consultants with local business people in developing countries. It was established in the United States in nineteen sixty-four as a Peace Corps for businesspeople.
在网上,他发现了一个叫国际高管服务的经济发展组织。这个私有非盈利的组织,将志愿者专家和付费咨询人员与发展中国家的(当地)商人联系起来。该组织作为商人和平组织、在1964年在美国成立。
In September, the International Executive Service Corps paid for Abe Mirza to travel to West Africa. He spent more than two months preparing for an intensive, two-week experience as a volunteer in Ghana. He went to Accra, the capital, to meet with bankers and businesspeople.
9月,国际高管服务组织支付了Abe Mirza去西非的费用。他花了二个月时间,准备了在加纳作为志愿者的二星期高强度工作。他去了加纳首都阿克拉,与银行和商家见面。
From his early meetings he learned that the bankers wanted the businesspeople to keep better financial records. So he taught major accounting methods to eighty businesspeople.
These were leaders of medium-sized businesses, like Home Food Processing and Cannery, a seller of palm oil and spices. Another example was All Pure Nature, a maker of shea butter for skin care and other products.
根据见面的初步情况,他明白,银行希望商家做好财务帐目。因此,他向18位商人传授了主要会计方法。
这些是中等企业的领导,如家庭食品加工罐头厂,一家出售棕榈油和香料的企业。另一个实例是纯天然产品公司,是一家适用于皮肤保健与其它产品的牛油树脂制造企业。
The businesses were large enough to be ready to export their goods. But they had not reached the level of record keeping that would permit them to develop a lending relationship with banks.
The owners all had the same need to understand international accounting rules. Accountants in Ghana and other countries are adopting a new system of financial reporting.
这些商家很大,可出口产品。但是,他们的记帐水平尚未使他们与银行建立借贷关系。
所有商家均具有相同的需求,即理解国际会计准则。加纳和其它国家的会计目前在采用一种新的财务报表制度。
Abe Mirza had to provide a lot of information. He says it was like learning everything for a four-year college degree in one week. He not only showed the businesspeople how to present financial statements. He also showed them how, and why, banks look at the information.
Abe Mirza says he did a lot in his years as a businessman, but nothing compares to the feeling of satisfaction he got from his short time in Ghana.
Abe Mirza必需提供许多信息。他说,这像是在一个星期中学习四年大学学位的知识。他不仅向商家传授如何编制财务报表,并且也告诉他们银行如何以及为何审查这些财务报表。
Abe Mirza说,在作为商人的许多年中,他做了许多,但远不及他在加纳短期中所获得的满足感。
