• standard setting;
• management accounting and performance measurement;

• the impact of digital transformation on the control and accountability of public sector entities; international harmonisation and the role of international (or regional) standards;
• and the role of public sector entities and financial reporting systems in promoting plans and action for the achievement of the UN’s SDGs.
