Thank you very much for inviting me to speak to you today. It is a great pleasure to be here for this event, which has enabled me to experience a new aspect of the United States and most importantly, has given me the opportunity to meet with management accountants from all across your country. Over 50 percent of the members of IFAC's 159 member bodies are employed in business.
A personal priority of mine over the past eighteen months has been to meet with as many professional accountants in business as possible, for two primary reasons. First, I have wanted better to understand your interests, your challenges and your needs so that we at IFAC can be more responsive to you. At the same time, I also wanted to make you aware of the IFAC initiatives that are focused specifically on and for you.
