Nexus 2: The Accountancy Profession – A Global Value Add is the second report based on research by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr). The report examines the accountancy profession’s link to national economic growth and improved living standards. It estimates that the global profession contributes USD $575 billion annually to the global economy, and shows the opportunity to further strengthen the profession as a unified voice. Importantly, the report reveals the correlation between the share of accountants in total employment, and both GDP per capita improvement and improved human development outcomes.
