Good morning ladies and gentlemen. It is a pleasure for me to speak to you on this second morning of the Africa Region Learning Workshop. It is an honor for me to have the opportunity to share with you today IFAC's key priorities related to the development of the worldwide profession. IFAC, as an international accountancy organization and standard-setter, has a number of key initiatives underway that focus on the growth of the accountancy profession and the needs of the profession in developing nations and transitioning economies. That is the focus of my discussion today; however, I would first like to thank those who have made this Workshop possible.
