ABSTRACT
The article reports that members of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) met in London, England for a technical session. After the session the IASB met with the chairpersons of eight of the top national standard-setting boards, from several countries including Australia, Canada, and France. The main goal of the IASB was to achieve a single set of internally consistent, quality global accounting standards. Board chairperson Sir David Tweedie stated that the goal will not be made without the cooperation of national policy makers.
