Accountants Launch Global Forums to Discuss Vital Issues for Business

Ten new Global Forums have been launched by ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) bringing together expertise from all sectors around the world to tackle issues crucial to the finance profession and business.


The Global Forums will help to develop ACCA’s work to influence government, policy makers and businesses on key issues and contribute to ACCA’s Research and Insights projects and initiatives.


The Forums will meet on a regular basis to further the thinking on current and future issues in a number of specific technical subject areas, as well the accountancy and finance profession more widely. They will have an international remit to develop views which support the needs of business globally, with an increasing emphasis on emerging markets.


ACCA believes that issues are very frequently local and will continue to pursue a local agenda, where appropriate, within this new framework, especially in areas such as tax, regulation and SME matters.


The new Forums will also help ACCA with its aim to strengthen its local contributions by drawing on thinking and best practice from around the world to inform its insight.


The Global Forums are: The Accountancy Futures Academy; Accountants for Business Global Forum; and global forums for Governance, Risk and Performance; Corporate reporting; Audit and Assurance; Sustainability; Business Law; Public Sector; and Taxation and SMEs.
