The IAESB and its Consultative Advisory Group (CAG) recently met in Bali, Indonesia. They were hosted by Ikatan Akuntan Indonesia on April 8-11.
The board and CAG meeting agendas included discussion and collaboration on important issues for global accountancy education, including:
- Preliminary analysis of Exposure Draft comments for the proposed revisions to International Education Standards 2, 3, 4, and 8 on information & communications technologies (ICT) and professional skepticism learning outcomes;
- Review and discussion of implementation support for ICT, public sector accountancy, reporting and assurance, and professional accountants who work in business; and
- Transition planning for the new model for international accountancy education.
The IAESB and CAG also discussed ways to help improve implementation support and stakeholder engagement and communications.
The overlapping meetings enabled crossover and increased collaboration, as well as providing the opportunity for collective, direct engagement with professional accountants and accountancy students in the region, which helps inform the IAESB’s work. This included a student event at Universitas Udayana and a conference on competencies of the future.
