ABOUT ICPAK – THE HOST

The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK) is a regulatory body mandated to regulate and coordinate the activities of qualified and registered Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) in Kenya – including promoting research into the subject of accountancy and finance and related matters, publication of books, periodicals, journals and articles in connection therewith; promoting the international recognition of the Institute, advising the Examination Board on matters relating to examinations standards and policies, advising the Minister for Finance on matters relating to financial accountability in all sectors of the economy and setting and enforcing standards of professional practice such as accounting, auditing and ethical standards. The Institute is established by an Act of parliament – The Accountants Act No. 15 of 2008 and has been in existence since 1978.  Over its long history it has registered over 23,000 members. Its members work in diverse sectors of the economy as accountants, financial experts, auditor and financial consultants. Over 500 of our members have emigrated and are working beyond the borders of Kenya. Members of the Institute are present in 41 different countries around the globe.

 ANNUAL SEMINARS – A BRIEF HISTORY

Each year for the last 34 years, ICPAK has maintained a rich tradition of congregating once a year in the month of May to reflect on the profession, emerging issues affecting our nation.  This year’s seminar follows in pattern as it seeks to reinforce the role of professional accountants in safeguarding public interest.  The previous 34th Annual Seminar attracted 2,800 participants largely drawn from Kenya but with representation from Uganda, Rwanda and Nigeria.  This year the event is targeted to attract 3,000 participants

 THE 35th ANNUAL SEMINAR

Day 1 – Subtheme: Economic Transformation

Day 2 – Subtheme: Africa’s Technology Story

Day 3 – Subtheme: Role of Professionals in Society

 About the Theme: Africa’s Value Addition for Global Competitiveness; Which way Africa Beyond Agenda 2063?

A lot is said about Africa and what is said falls neatly into three boxes. In the first box are those who say Africa is yet to fully tell its story. In box two, they speak about Africa’s potential and this box is full to the brim. Right from Africa’s oil (about 12% of the global oil) gold (Africa has 42% of global gold) to chromium and platinum metals (Africa has 80-90%), 60% of Africa is arable land. Add these to the hospitable warm embrace in the context of overflowing fauna and flora and you notice just why the second box is full to the brim and over flowing. In the third box, is Africa’s current reality characterized by less than optimal leadership, long outstanding civil strife among other challenges compounded by weak or poor governance structures.

The headline address will review the three boxes and provide a clear direction on what needs to be done urgently to sustain the momentum of Africa’s renaissance and achievement of Agenda 2063.
