We have posted "Take It from the Top", an Interview with IASB Chairman Sir David Tweedie from the June 2005 issue of 'A Plus', the newly revamped magazine of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Hong Kong has adopted every IFRS word for word as Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards effective in 2005, replacing old Hong Kong GAAP. Issues that Sir David addresses in the interview include the pace of change, the need for further improvements in existing standards, bringing the US on board with IFRSs, and the need for simplified standards for small and medium-sized entities.
