CAPA support IFAC's recommendation to the G-20 to build trust and integrity

3 September 2016

The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) recently released a set of comprehensive recommendations to the Group of 20 (G-20) to build trust and integrity in the global economy. Global economic stability can be greatly enhanced by stronger governance across both public and private sectors, and a stable regulatory environment.

Released ahead of the G-20 Leaders' Summit on 4-5 September 2016 in China, 'Trust and Integrity: The Accountancy Profession's Call for Action by the G-20' includes recommendations on actions to create sustainable, inclusive public and private growth. It calls on G-20 members to address:

  • stronger governance for trust and integrity in business and the public sector; and
  • creation of a cooperative, consistent and smart regulatory environment.

CAPA supports this initiative and together with IFAC, calls on the accountancy profession to join effort in amplifying this message.
