Gadkari continued that the four most important aspects of leadership are – team work, transparency, commitment and vision. “Take decisions with full transparency while keeping in mind innovations and creativity to excel in all walks of life,” he said.
He said, “Chartered accountants are growth engine of economy.” Gadkari said, “CAs are financial doctors but along with this financial learning, they should look for innovative technology to work for financial stability of their clients. Conversion of this knowledge of CAs into action would build the future of our country.” The expectations from CAs has increased from managing GST and Income-Tax to managing the affairs of clients while guiding on economics, marketing, administration and assisting in vision and goal setting, he added. He said, technology and optimum usage of resources are not the only things, appropriate vision and leadership are equally important without which goal of perfection cannot be achieved.
