A Global Call for International Public Sector Accounting Standards

Frans van Schaik | August 9, 2016 | 1

The global economy does not need any more sovereign debt surprises, especially as countries need to know more about each other’s financial positions and performance than ever before. To overcome this problem, Frans van Schaik, the Global Leader Public Sector Accounting and Auditing at Deloitte, calls for governments to use International Public Sector Accounting Standards.
