International flavour for The CA's July issue
The July issue of The CA has a refreshed design and takes a global perspective. Our cover story features Olivia Kirtley, the first woman to be elected president of the worldwide accountancy federation, IFAC.
IFAC represents and supports national accountancy bodies around the world – including ICAS – but, as Kirtley stresses, IFAC's main concern is the public interest. That means promoting effective high quality standards and helping to build the profession in developing countries where it has traditionally been less strong.
This month we also take a look at the contrasting stories of some of the world's emerging economies – Indonesia, India, Brazil and Mexico – and meet CAs living and working there. Growth in many of those countries has been spectacular in recent years. Now, many of them are facing big challenges – but their opportunities are also huge.
Two articles in this issue focus on China. Mark Holmes and Dr Renfred Wong look at the state of corporate governance in the Chinese private sector, while Nelson Yiu reports on an initiative linking creative businesses in Shanghai and Edinburgh.
Other features include Practice Management, with examples of innovative accountancy practices, and Farming and Rural Property. We also preview the One Young CA competition and the ICAS Conference, taking place on 27 November.
