1. Adopting world-class accounting

5. Reflecting economic reality

2. Best-in-class financial reporting

6. Benefits to institutional investors

3. Improving decision-making

7. Rating agency responsibilities

4. Increasing accountability

8. Investment bank responsibilities

Kazarian (Chairman and CEO of Japonica Partners), Hon. Ruth Richardson (former Finance Minister of New Zealand), and Prof. Dr. Frans van Schaik (Global Public Sector Audit Leader at Deloitte).

Japonica noted:

"It is a new world in sovereign bond investing with the smartest institutional investors, rating agencies, and financial advisors encouraging sovereigns to adopt world-class GAAP."

Japonica released details via a two-page section one centerfold notice in the January 27, 2014 Financial Times. Symposium attendance is by invitation only.
