Fermín del Valle | IFAC President

Jul 20, 2006 | Santiago, Chile | English

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. It is a very distinct pleasure for me to be here today in Santiago de Chile and have the opportunity to address you at the opening of this seminar organized by the Colegio de Contadores de Chile (CCCH) and the IFAC´s International Accounting Education Standards Board. As Deputy President of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), an organization composed of almost 160 accountancy bodies worldwide, I applaud the decision of the International Accounting Education Standards Board to meet in such a beautiful South American country and, together with the local professional organization, to have taken the initiative to organize this seminar on the importance of promoting convergence in the standards of education in accounting, on the one hand, and the analysis of the transition of accounting education on the other.

I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the Colegio de Contadores de Chile, and especially its President, Mr. Luis Alberto Werner-Wildner, for their hospitality and support of these activities. The CCCH has demonstrated its commitment to the development of the international accountancy profession and to achieving economic growth and stability worldwide thorough its membership in the IFAC. It has also promoted the adherence to high quality professional standards and it supported international convergence.
