ACCA’s 4th International Public Sector Conference: Rebalancing the economy - boosting growth


16 Aug 2012


Euro & Finance

13 December 2012, ACCA London

In a time when sovereign debt issues are prominent around the world and the measures taken to resolve the crisis have been described as no more than dispensing a 'financial aspirin' this conference provides a timely opportunity to consider how the economy can be rebalanced and how public services can help boost growth.

The first half of the day will focus on the economic outlook and trends. We will hear from a range of high profile speakers on the current state of the economy and discuss a range of economic scenarios and their implications for public services in the future. The second part of the day will focus on how to re-build an effective economy, introduce greater transparency of public spending and explore how public services can contribute to boosting economic growth, both internationally and at local levels.

We are delighted to have the following speakers from a range of organisations that are leading the field in this area. These include:

-  Carl Emmerson, deputy director, Institute of Fiscal Studies

- Gary Gillespie, director and chief economist for Scotland's government

- Mario Marcel, deputy director of the Public Governance and Territorial Development Directorate, OECD

- Fabian Zuleeg, chief economist, European Policy Centre

- Brian Quinn, director, Loan Department, World Bank

- Richard Hughes, economist, IMF

- Alexandre Makaronidis, head of unit - GFS quality management and government accounting at DG Eurostat.
