As part of an agenda for global financial reform, the Group of 20 Leaders (G20) have called for standard-setters to re-double their efforts to achieve convergence in global accounting standards by June 2011. At the same time, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) is midway through its own comprehensive response to the financial crisis. Both endeavors are likely to result in a period of change for Japanese companies, investors and others involved in financial reporting. Sir David Tweedie, Chairman of the IASB, provides his own observations on the opportunities and challenges of financial reform, and his desire to see Japan play a leading role in shaping the future direction of global financial reporting.
