The forum geared towards creating a clear understanding of the capabilities and competencies that each professional accounting qualification possesses, the role of professional accounting bodies and how best the employer industry can leverage on these qualifications for effectiveness in the workplace. Also, the forum gave attendants a better understanding of what professional accounting is, a clear framework for recruitment and staff training with regards to professional accounting, as well as interrogate how Government can further create an inclusive environment for professional accounting qualifications amongst others.
