‘Over the next two years, we will focus on helping developing nations to build an accountancy profession characterised by adherence to high standards and IFAC’s core values of integrity, transparency and expertise,’ said Ward.

‘We will support them in developing strong infrastructures that protect the public interest, thereby promoting employment, health and stability. Recognising the vital importance of SMEs to driving economic growth, we will also provide practical support to the small and medium-sized practices that serve them, in both developed and developing countries.’
