About the Forum

There is no stopping the march of International Financial Reporting Standards. More than 100 jurisdictions have adopted these standards, and the news that the United States will be adopting them as will Japan, India and other huge market shows these standards are here to stay.

China's massive convergence project, announced last year, is another important marker.

Hong Kong achieved full convergence in 2005 and has been working with China to bring about substantial convergence between Chinese accounting standards for business enterprises and HKFRS over the past year.

The Hong Kong Institute of CPAs’ Financial Reporting Forum 2008 is bringing together speakers from the Institute, the International Accounting Standards Board, and the Ministry of Finance to discuss the most important development of international standard setting in the world today.

This forum is for standard setters, preparers and auditors, for CEOs, CFOs, professional accountants and others interested in financial reporting.

Sign up now to join and hear the latest news and views in standard setting from an international and local perspective.
