Firmansyah N. Nazaroedin
President of ASEAN Valuers Associations (AVA)

Dear Fellow AVA Members,

Since its establishment in 1981, AVA has contributed in promoting valuation regulations, standards, and techniques adopted by the valuers across Southeast Asia. Therefore, it is an honour and such a privilege for me to serve the Presidency of AVA for the 2021-2022 period.

In the past two years, the sudden waves of the Covid-19 pandemic have already put us in challenging situations. We, the AVA member countries, hand in hand and have put the best effort to overcome these unprecedented adversities. Nevertheless, we also deserved to be proud since our valuation and real estate industries survived the pandemic, as presented in the previous meeting outstandingly. Therefore, allow me to convey appreciation to all of you and the organizer of the 23rd AVA Congress Meeting, the Cambodia Valuers and Estate Agents Association (CVEA).

Reflecting on this monumental experience and the need for collective action among the ASEAN valuers, Indonesia addresses ‘Emerging Stronger, Valuation for Strong Recovery and Sustainable Future’ as the tagline of the 24th AVA Congress Meeting. The theme echoes the same spirit of Indonesia's G20 Summit 2022 – ‘Recover Together, Recover Stronger’. We believe AVA member countries will rise together and so prepared for the post-Covid-19, through devising the edge strategies and operational models to thrive in the new normal.

As the President of AVA, I am delighted to invite you to participate in the upcoming 24th AVA Congress Meeting in Indonesia. Indonesia Ministry of Finance, Masyarakat Profesi Penilai Indonesia (MAPPI)/Indonesia Society of Appraisers (ISA), and The Permanent Secretariat of AVA are collaborating in harmony to warmly welcome you. For us, meeting the expectations of all participants is paramount in organizing the future congress.

We are also looking forward to an excellent meeting with all delegates, participants, experts, and professionals in the events of the Road to AVA and the 24th AVA Congress Meeting. The event series will serve you productive discussions of the challenges and progress of the valuation industry within the ASEAN region. Hence, please make sure your name is enlisted, take care and stay safe.

President of AVA 2021-2022
