ISCA CEO, Mr Lee Fook Chiew, was quoted in The Business Times on the question of "As Singapore turns 54, what is the most pressing issue facing the country?" This is what he has to share:
With rapid technological advancements such as artificial intelligence and automation transforming the way companies operate, Singaporeans will need to master new skills to remain relevant in this age of Industry 4.0. To successfully ride the digital wave, the government has rolled out a slew of initiatives to support the upskilling and reskilling of Singaporeans. As the national accountancy body, ISCA is similarly preparing the accountancy profession for the digital age. For example, our learning roadmaps enable accountancy professionals to identify their competency gaps and take charge of their professional development. We also developed specialisation pathways such as the ISCA Financial Forensic Accounting Qualification and ISCA Infrastructure & Project Finance Qualification for professionals to develop expertise and be recognised as specialists in these high-growth areas. We will continue to expand our course offerings to include topics such as artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, blockchain and data visualisation, to better prepare accountancy professionals for the future economy. - Lee Fook Chiew, Chief Executive Officer, Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA)
