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
