ACCA publishes webcasts of 2014 Public Sector conference


The 2014 ACCA international public sector conference entitled Putting finance into Politics’ took place in London on 4 December 2014. It explored how to achieve sound financial management and sustainable public finances when so much of the focus is on the short-term political cycle.

Speakers included Simon Hamilton, Minister of Finance, Northern Ireland; Dr Lim Mah Hui, former professor and international banker and author of the controversial book ‘Nowhere to hide’; and many others from IFAC, Victorian Audit Office, Australia, Ministry of Finance Sri Lanka, Durham University, and Manchester University.

Webcasts are now available on ACCA’s website for those who want to relive the conference.
