On October 30, 2018, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) released a speech by IASB® Member Ann Tarca, where she discussed the relationships of the IASB with its primary stakeholders. The speech was given at the RJ Chambers Memorial Research Lecture in Sydney.

Ms. Tarca's speech was a tour d'horizon covering:

  • development of a set of global standards for use in the world’s capital markets (2001–2005);
  • the convergence program with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and impact of the global financial crisis (2006–2009);
  • working on the major standards (2010–2013); and
  • implementation of the major standards and the better communication initiative (2014 onwards).
