For the first time, following a number of years, the Professional Accountant in Business (PAIB) Conference reconvenes. CEOs and CFOs today face various challenges to keep their business not only afloat, but to experience growth within the current local and international context.
The Malta Institute of Accountants (MIA) are collaborating with the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) to organise a conference where CEOs and CFOs are given the space to discuss the diverse challenging demands and opportunities for their businesses.
This conference will include the participation of The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry as well as Accountancy Europe.
The first session will be about the skills required in the 21st century, whether upskilling is an option and how the future accountant will change from what it does today. IFAC have issued a report on the future-fit Accountant: "A Vision for the CFO and Finance Function". The representatives from IFAC will be discussing this in a panel including varied areas; the Financial Function of the Future, Shifting from Accounting for the Balance Sheet to Accounting for the business, Digitalisation of Finance & Accounting momentum, developing the vision and enabling transformation and the implications for professional accountancy organisations.
From Accountancy Europe, we will delve into the environmental sustainability that is high on the EU's agenda. Accountancy Europe are researching ways on how to make the economy more sustainable. "The planet is in crisis" hence the only way we can make it in the future is to change the way we do business today and focus on conserving our resources. Good corporate governance is a driver to a more sustainable economy.
Another agenda point is how good corporate governance and ethical behaviour can benefit the business. Adhering to best practice guidelines across the business helps achieve results and can protect against a crisis. How important is business ethics for the business? And what benefits arise from this? How can businesses avoid scandals that result from lack of good ethical behaviour?
Lastly, a panel discussion will discuss the struggles by local businesses in dealing with lack of resources. The panel will come from various stakeholders including, an economist, a representative from the Malta Employers Association, a recruitment agency and industry.


  • The future Accountant in Business. Upskilling challenges in the workforce. How automations will change the future business.
  • What Accountancy Europe are doing in terms of the Sustainable Economy.
  • How effective ‘good governance and ethics’ benefits your business?
  • How are Maltese businesses dealing with a decrease in unemployment, employee turnover and scarce resources?
