Representatives were present from the China Accounting Standard Committee (CASC), Accounting Standards Board of Japan (ASBJ), Korea Accounting Standards Board (KASB), and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), together with guests from Hong Kong and Macao and a number of other delegates.

  1. To continue to follow major ongoing projects of the IASB, including the Conceptual Framework, insurance contracts and leases, and to remain committed to jointly contributing to a single set of high quality global financial reporting standards;
  2. to play a leading role among standard setters in the Asia-Oceania region in the development of the future strategy of the AOSSG; and
  3. to enhance the communication and cooperation among the three countries in relation to the future governance review of the IFRS Foundation, so as to further improve the involvement in the standard-setting process of IFRSs.

The next meeting will be held in Korea on 23 November 2015.
