The Role of IFAC in Restoring Public Confidence in the Accountancy Profession
There is no question that the international accountancy profession has a unique, critical and practical role to play in building stronger and more stable economies around the globe. In order to carry out this role fully, however, we need to continue to enhance confidence in the profession and to build trust. Investor confidence and public trust empowers our profession. Without it, the credibility of the information we produce, indeed the future of our profession itself, is put at risk. Whether we work in Pakistan or Portugal, we cannot afford to take this risk.
