From Crisis to Recovery: Public Sector Priorities to Support COVID-19 Recovery
May 19, 2021 | Surveys & Reports
The public sector is a high priority for IFAC and the global accountancy profession. Professional accountants serve the public interest, and as such, those working in the public sector have been at the heart of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, playing a critical role in advising governments and helping make tough choices, drive innovation, do more with less, and ultimately reinforcing trust in public services and spending.
IFAC convened a global virtual roundtable to explore key strategic issues for the public sector and its finance leaders as the world’s governments advance from crisis response to recovery. This event brought together senior public finance professionals from across central and local governments, the health sector, accountant general and supreme audit institutions, as well as members of the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) and representatives from professional accountancy organizations.
This paper, From Crisis to Recovery: Public sector priorities to support COVID-19 recovery, summarizes the key themes discussed at the virtual meeting.
