With the markets recovering from the recent economic tsunami, IFRS once again moves to front and center on the radar scope of many companies.

This live webcast will feature an end-to-end discussion on convergence. The panel will reevaluate the Roadmap in light of the changing economic landscape. They will discuss enforcement issues and how to consistently interpret principles and how to cope with the lack of detailed guidance.
