Shaping the Future of PFM
15 Mar 2011
1st International conference: Trust and accountability in public financial management. Held at Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Westminster, London

Headline Speakers

Headline sponsor: 

With continued global economic uncertainty, the delivery of public financial management (PFM) is more important than ever. 

All around the world, public sector spending is under pressure. People are expecting more of their public services and demanding better value for money – whatever the level of development or economic circumstances of their country.

How should policymakers and those that advise them respond to these pressures?

CIPFA and its partners organised our first International Conference so international representatives of professional bodies, national government finance and audit professionals, academics, NGOs and development experts could come together to help answer those questions.
