The third presentation featured panellists: Patrice Schumesch, global partner, PwC, Alexandre Makaronidis, Eurostat and Professor Ron Hodges, Birmingham University.
They shared different perspectives on financial reporting around the world, including a current rise in reporting off-balance sheet by some governments, the development of European accounting standards and a global survey of approaches to financial reporting by different countries. At a time when the levels of sovereign debt are at an all-time high and where economic growth is stalling in some countries, these topics generated a lively debate.
