IFRS and the Middle East

Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 October 2017

Letter from Hans Hoogervorst, Chairman, IASB

I am pleased to announce the IFRS Foundation’s conference in the Middle East.

Members of the IASB will join private sector financial reporting leaders, regulatory bodies, accounting professionals and others with an interest in IFRS Standards.

You will hear about the future of financial reporting, directly from the people who set our Standards.

Pre-conference workshops cover:

  • an investor-focused IFRS Standards update
  • IFRS 9, IFRS 15 & IFRS 16
  • Better Communication in financial reporting

I will be speaking at the conference, as will Sue Lloyd, Vice-Chair of the Board, Board members—Martin Edelmann and Gary Kabureck—and a number of the Board’s senior technical staff and other IFRS experts.

There will also be coverage of:

* implementation activities
* Islamic accounting and finance
* other major active IASB projects including the conceptual framework and materiality

I look forward to seeing you in Dubai.

Yours sincerely,

Hans Hoogervorst

Chairman of the Board
