Update on IASB outreach activities

15 Sep, 2010

As part of its outreach activities, the IASB regularly undertakes a number of discussion group forums in various locations around the globe.

Usually hosted by local standard setters, these forums provide a way for the IASB to communicate with constituents on its plans and understand local jurisdictional impacts. Accordingly, these forums present a unique opportunity for constituents not only to better understand the IASB's proposals, but also to put forward their suggestions and concerns.

The table below summarises outreach meetings planned in the coming weeks:
