Strategies for the 21st Century

Fermín del Valle | IFAC President

Nov 10, 2006 | Istanbul, Turkey | English

Thank you for giving me the privilege of serving as IFAC President and for the confidence you have placed in me. As IFAC President, over the next two years my objective will be to continue working in the same direction, advancing the course set by Past Presidents Rene Ricol and Graham Ward. It is a course that has enabled us to make significant progress in building public trust in our profession. However, while I do not believe that we need to change our strategic direction, I would ask all of you here to help me to move farther and faster down the course, to come closer to achieving our ultimate goal: enhancing societies around the world by contributing to their social and economic development.
