    EVENT OVERVIEW

    The first ever GCC Finance Summit 2023 serves as a platform for exchanging insights on the constantly evolving economic, social, and technological landscape that shapes the business and finance profession. It is an exclusive gathering of distinguished finance professionals convened under the theme of ‘Enabling for Future: Technology and Sustainability’, organized by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan (ICAP). 

    Investors, board members and regulators are now intensifying their focus on real-time oversight of organizational operations and disclosures, with a slate of new initiatives planned for 2023, including an increased emphasis on ESG factors. 

    Adding to the complexity, business divisions are demanding enhanced actionable insights and immediate analytics, while customers are advocating for personalized self-service experiences powered by digital platforms and resources. 

    To deliberate upon these issues and explore potential solutions, we cordially invite you to join us at the GCC Finance Summit 2023. This event promises an enriching experience that aims to equip finance professionals with the knowledge and strategies necessary to thrive in the rapidly evolving financial landscape.
