ACCA Pakistan conceives an innovative symposium

Setting the forward agenda of Business and Finance – ACCA Pakistan conceives an innovative symposium


ACCA Pakistan is organising an exciting event; Accountancy Futures Symposium – Critical issues for tomorrow's profession on the 24- 25 November in Karachi.

In the wake of global economic crises, it has become eminent for business leaders and policy gurus to question the corporate shortcomings and public practices of today and deliberate on the future best practices, for emergence of a sustainable and sound business era.

ACCA foresees accountants and finance professionals in all sectors as the true value creators across organisations; the promoters of sound business practices that drive great performance. More and more businesses demand from their finance function the ability to think about the future of the business, scan the horizon for business opportunities, design new business models and contribute to the innovation of products, services and processes.


Through the Accountancy Futures Symposium, ACCA aims is to bring together high caliber delegates and industry experts to lead a dialogue on topics that we see as the most important to the future of accounting, auditing, finance and management.


The symposium also promises to deliberate on novel agenda's like climate change, carbon emissions and water shortages, probably a bigger threat to our economies than security. Additionally, discussions will also focus on the SME and small business agenda.
