As part of the 10th-annual Virtual Public Sector Conference (VPSC), ACCA’s Public Sector Team convened two roundtables with our partners at IFAC to continue conversations from our VPSC with a number of expert participants.
The roundtables look place on December 7th and December 8th 2020.They focused on Sustainable Public Finances During Times of Crisis (chaired by Anthony Harbinson, ex-ACCA President) and The Role of the Public Finance Profession in Achieving the SDGs (chaired by Jimmy Greer, ACCA’s Head of Sustainability). These sessions were co-organised with our colleagues at IFAC and the turnout and level of discussion were fantastic. Overall, we hosted 22 senior experts spanning different sectors, regions and areas of expertise. As a result of these timely conversations, we drafted two policy briefs based on the recommendations of both groups.
The recommendations call on governments to meet a number of important objectives including utilising the role of the public finance profession to push for progress in achieving the SDGs and ensuring the COVID-19 economic recovery is both sustainable and inclusive of all.
Take a look at the policy briefs under the downloads section and help continue the conversations around these important issues.
