IFAC is the global organization for the accountancy profession dedicated to serving the public interest by strengthening the profession and contributing to the development of strong international economies. IFAC is comprised of over 175 members and associates in more than 130 countries and jurisdictions, representing almost 3 million accountants in public practice, education, government service, industry, and commerce.
There is an urgent need and a real opportunity for the accountancy profession to speak into the public conversation about rebuilding trust, with an authority built on decades of acting in the public interest and advocating for transparency and accountability. As an organization committed to time-tested values of integrity, expertise and transparency, IFAC is the trusted and influential voice for the global profession and plays a critical leadership role in building trust and inspiring confidence in the profession’s future.
IFAC's 2019-2020 Strategic Plan details our vision, purpose and strategic objectives, which reflect our aspirations for a dynamic, future-focused global profession. They, as well as our three strategic objectives, were developed to be relevant well beyond this plan’s two-year timeframe. The strategy supports a more agile IFAC in coping with a rapidly changing environment.
