PICPA’s Accountancy Week Celebration 2023

Thank you, Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) for the opportunity to engage with your esteemed community as you celebrate this year’s Accountancy Week. It is truly an honor to be able to address such a distinguished group of professionals.

However, I believe that your impact extends beyond just the financial realm. As an accountant, you possess the unique skillset that can drive the effective implementation of the Philippine Ecosystem and Natural Accounting System (PENCAS). This is essential in managing and preserving our natural resources, ensuring sustainable development for generations to come.

Moreover, I see great potential for collaboration between the accounting profession and organizations such as the Philippine Registry of Cultural Property (PRECUP) and the National Commission on Culture and the Arts (NCCA). By leveraging your expertise in financial management and cultural heritage, you can contribute significantly to the management of our cultural assets.

I am confident that with our collective efforts, we can build a future where economic growth thrives hand in hand with the protection of our environment and the celebration of our diverse cultural heritage. The role of accountants in this endeavor is paramount, and I applaud PICPA for fostering the development of such capable professionals.

Once again, I thank you for this opportunity to address your esteemed community and commend your dedication to excellence in the field of accountancy. Let us continue to work together toward a brighter and more sustainable future for our nation.
