ICPAK’s Inaugural Chapter Seminar – UK is an innovative seminar created to cross-pollinate ideas and create synergies to develop new generation of accountants required to serve in 21st century. Such accountants are required to accelerate contribution to achievement of Sustainable Development Goals and Kenya Vision 2030.
The World Leaders committed to supporting the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda aimed to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all [on September 25, 2015]. The agenda supported by 17 sustainable development goals recognizes the following as important conduits for development: building effective, accountable and transparent institution at all levels; a substantial reduction in corruption and bribery in all forms; and development of skilled and adequate human capacity. In addition, to achieve the 2010 Constitution, Kenya has developed Vision 2030 that articulates key development goals aimed at improving the lives of Kenyans and enhancing the level of Kenya’s contribution to regional and global growth. Vision 2030 also calls for strengthening institutions in the country and developing skilled human capital required to serve in both private and public sector. Emphasis is placed on enhancing development at County level.
These developments have increased pressure on the accountancy professions to articulate how it can accelerate its contribution in Kenya and globally. In this regard, the Seminar will explore and design action oriented reforms specifically focused on developing accountants required to serve in 21st Century by sharing experiences from UK and Kenya. The seminar will benefit from participation and input from ICAEW and ACCA: institutions that ICPAK has entered into memorandum of agreements with. It will also serve as an opportunity to launch the Chapter.
