The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) is seeking comments on a draft 2010-2012 strategy and work plan that will outline the priorities of IFAC’s services to professional accountants in business.
The draft proposals have been prepared by IFAC’s Professional Accountants in Business (PAIB) Committee.
The strategy focuses on enhancing the profile, influence and relevance of professional accountants in business, identifying two specific objectives:
1. Increasing awareness of the important roles professional accountants play in creating, enabling, preserving and reporting value for organisations and their stakeholders; and,
2. Supporting the professional accountants in business within IFAC member bodies by facilitating the communication and sharing of good practices and ideas.
PAIB Committee chair Roger Tabor said the proposed strategic direction will provide a basis for IFAC to determine how best to serve a large, diverse constituency at a global level.
The deadline for comments on the draft is 14 July.
