In our News Story of 10 February we reported on a conference on international developments in accounting and auditing that was hosted by the European Commission in Brussels on 8 February 2010. One of the presenters at that conference was made by Mr Masamichi Kono, Deputy Director General of the Supervisory Bureau of the Financial Services Agency of Japan.

He explained the Japanese step-by-step roadmap toward the full adoption of IFRSs for listed companies by 2015 or 2016, including the voluntary early adoption that has already started from 1 April 2009. Click to Download Mr Kono's Presentation (PDF 145k).
