The Trustees of the IFRS Foundation have announced the appointment of the incoming Office Director of the Foundation's Asia-Oceania liaison office.

The IFRS Foundation announced the establishment of the Tokyo office in February 2011 in order to expand opportunities for direct contact between the IFRS Foundation and its stakeholders in the region.

The incoming Office Director, Mr Mitsuhiro Takemura, will be responsible for all operations of the liaison office. Expectations are that the office will develop into a regional research hub that will support the research and fact-finding activities of the IASB. Mr Takemura is intended to be the first point of contact for Asia-Oceania region stakeholders and will be a means of forwarding contributions from that region to the IASB’s standard-setting activities.

Mr Takemura is currently a Partner at Deloitte and is a former visiting fellow of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and a former member of the technical staff of the Accounting Standards Board in Japan.

The Asia-Oceania liaison office will be opened in October this year.
