The IASB and IASCF have completed the first two three-day workshops to 'train the trainers' on the IFRS for Small and Medium-sized Entities.

The two workshops were organised by the Confederation of Asian and Pacific Accountants (CAPA) and funded, in part, by the Asian Development Bank. They took place on 20-22 January 2010 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and on 25-27 January 2010 in Hyderabad, India (the latter at a new residential training facility provided by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India). Instructors were Paul Pacter, the IASB's Director of Standards for SMEs, and Michael Wells, Director of the IASCF's IFRS Education Initiative. There were 85 participants from 15 jurisdictions: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, North Korea, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. All participants have committed to organise similar IFRS for SMEs training workshops in their own country. The IASB will provide the training materials and PowerPoint presentations for those workshops. For more information contact Michael Wells at mwells@iasb.org.
