On behalf of the IFRS Foundation, we would like to thank you for attending the World Standard-setter conference on 1–2 October 2018 in London. Your engagement and enthusiasm helped to make the conference a great success. We always value your views and we are very greatful for sharing them with us.
The WSS conference provides an open forum for standard-setters to network and discuss jurisdictional issues that affect the development of new and revised Standards.
WSS is the most inclusive gathering that we have with standard-setters from around the world. It is a fantastic opportunity to talk to a lot of people.
