Ladies and gentlemen, I'm honored to be here in Osaka speaking to you on the 50th anniversary of the CAPA conference. Much has happened at CAPA since the meeting of the First Far East Conference of Accountants half a century ago in the Philippines, attended by your twelve founding members. Today, CAPA is a large and very important regional accountancy organization, and its geographical area encompasses half the globe. As many of you know, IFAC is celebrating an anniversary this year too: our 30th. The progress that IFAC and the accountancy profession have been able to achieve was made possible through the cooperation of members and regional accountancy organizations such as CAPA.
