Just like Doctors take care of our health, Chartered Accountants take care of the financial economy and that’s the reason Chartered Accountants are said to be the financial doctors of our Economy. Rodi suggested that Chartered Accountants should look for increasing the size of the firm, consolidation should be done and infrastructure should be developed along with increasing knowledge base to counter increased competitiveness and to promote specialisation. We should accept covid as a challenge and use it as an opportunity to develop our infrastructure to work anywhere.
