During its 40th annual council IFAC has also admitted the Association of Accounting Technicians of Sri Lanka and the Institute of Certified Accountants of Montenegro as members, and the Lithuanian Association of Accountants and Auditors as an IFAC associate member.

The Accountant understands that the former president of the French Institute of Accountants (Ordre des Experts Comptables – OEC) Philippe Arraou was appointed president of IFAC’s Technology Advisory Group (TAG), although at the time of publication the appointment hadn’t been confirmed by IFAC. The TAG was set up by IFAC president Rachel Grimes at the  start of her mandate to help the accountancy industry to manage the risks and embrace the opportunities of technology.
