The International Public-Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) is holding roundtables in Europe (Brussels), Africa (Addis Ababa), and Asia (Manila) for senior government officials with public financial management (PFM) backgrounds to provide relevant and actionable feedback on its 2019-2023 draft strategy and work plan.

The Manila conference is an invaluable opportunity for government officials from ADB’s developing member countries (DMC) to contribute to the IPSASB standard-setting process and also enhance their public-sector accounting capacity, including knowledge of accrual-basis IPSAS and formulating plans to further improve their respective government accounting framework to be more transparent and accountable.

Participants and resource speakers

Senior government officials engaged in public sector accounting and/or financial management either from the ministry of finance, office of auditor general, or office of comptroller general (or equivalent) that would proactively contribute to the technical discussions, including sharing knowledge upon return to their home country.

High profile resource speakers and participants are also expected, including those from ADB’s DMCs, and other bilateral and multilateral development banks, including World Bank, African Development Bank (AfDB), Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). Representatives from supreme audit institutions such as International Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (INTOSAI), ASEAN Supreme Audit Institutions (ASEANSAI), and Pacific Association of Supreme Audit Institutions (PASAI), and International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) are also expected.
