It is that time of the year again as the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) gets ready to roll out the flagship MIA International Accountants Conference 2024.
Also known as the MIA Conference 2024, this popular regional gathering of accountancy and finance professionals will take place on 11-12 June 2024 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Themed “Navigating New Frontiers, Embracing Sustainability”, the MIA Conference 2024 will be laser focused on transformation and upskilling to achieve the future fitness and relevance of accountancy professionals.
MIA’s continuous research and extensive stakeholder engagement has revealed new emerging frontiers, risks and pressures around sustainability, technology, business model disruption, compliance and regulation, and geopolitics, to name some. Accountancy professionals attending the Conference will gain priceless insights into these new frontiers and the skillsets needed to navigate this volatile, complex and uncertain business landscape.
In particular, the MIA Conference will emphasise greatly on climate change and sustainability risks and opportunities that are projected to have a tremendous impact on business as usual. With their unique competencies, professionalism and global presence, accountancy professionals are ideally placed to lead and execute the environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda that will drive the transition to a low carbon economy and facilitate the climate goals reaffirmed at 2023’s COP28 (United Nations Climate Change Conference).
To expedite the future readiness of accountancy professionals, the Conference’s strategic content will encompass emerging technologies relevant to the profession, carbon credits and taxation, climate and green technology financing, ethical leadership, risk management, governance sustainability frameworks, and sustainability reporting, among others.
As a premier regional event, the MIA Conference 2024 will feature 80 sought-after speakers and industry specialists across 16 Plenary and Concurrent sessions over two days. Insights into the profession’s global direction and trends will be shared by Ms Asmâa Resmouki, President, International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) who will deliver a special address on Navigating the Profession’s New Frontiers.
Altogether, the MIA Conference 2024 is expected to draw more than 3,500 in-person and virtual delegates comprising of accountancy professionals, corporate leaders and public sector officials, presenting a wealth of networking and collaboration opportunities.
