Representatives from the World Bank, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the International Organization of Securities Commissions, the European Union, the International Accounting Standards Board, the International Federation of Accountants, major international accounting firms, national regulators, standard-setting bodies, and professional organizations will attend.
