Overview

The demands on the public sector accountant have never been greater.

With public sector budgets under increasing pressure, greater demands on public services, a global competition for talent and the disruptive influence of digital technology, how can we respond to the growing demands for public services and greater transparency? 

ACCA’s 9th International Public Sector Conference brought together global leaders to discuss the biggest questions in public sector finance. Through this webinar, we will share the highlights of their thoughts to keep you abreast of the latest developments in your sector.

At the end of this webinar, you will have a greater understanding of:

  • how accountants can help bridge the global infrastructure gap
  • the challenges facing supreme audit institutions
  • how to build a 21st century finance function
  • how digital technologies are transforming services in Canada and Estonia
  • how public sector accountants can help tackle fraud, corruption and serious organised crime.
