Contributing to the Global Economy
Accountants' Role in Economic Development
Nov 02, 2020 | Surveys & Reports
Professional accountants make a significant contribution to the economy at the local, national and global levels. In each measure reviewed, a greater number of accountants correlates to better economic performance. Moreover, professional accountants who are members of IFAC member professional accountancy organizations (PAOs) correlate to even stronger performance on the economic indicators.
In short, accountants make a significant contribution to their national economies. Accountants who are members of an IFAC member professional accountancy organization make an even greater meaningful contribution.
