The public sector is facing a multitude of challenges globally, from budgetary pressures and revenue limitations to intense scrutiny of public finances, all at the same time as rapidly increasing demand for high-quality public services. Around the world, common issues have emerged with many countries facing increasingly less citizens carrying the financial burden created by our societies from increased spending needs.
The global accountancy profession, with its public interest mandate has a critical role to play in helping to address these challenges by ensuring transparency and accountability in financial management. Trust and reliability over information for accountable decision making is paramount.
