HLB International has added its first
Uzbekistan member firm.

Tashkent based АО Konsaudit-Adolat has two
partners and 22 staff.

The Uzbekistan firm specialises in external
audit services for enterprises and joint stock companies who have
51% or more of state ownership.

HLB International said the addition is
consistent with the firm’s strategy to add members in developing
countries and follows the network’s appointment of a new member
firm in Azerbaijan at the end of last year.

AO Konsaudit-Adolat chief executive Natalya
Istomina said the firm intends to strengthen HLB’s position in
Central Asia.
