Mr. Kimitaka Mori, Chairman and President of JICPA, opened the symposium with an introduction to Integrated Reporting <IR> and JICPA’s activities to date in support of <IR>. During the morning session, a dialogue was held between Mr. Paul Druckman, CEO of International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and Mr. Tatsumi Yamada, Ambassador of IIRC and a former Board Member of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), followed by a panel discussion on value creation and the future of management and corporate reporting.
Mr. Atsushi Saito, Director & Representative Executive Officer, Group CEO of the Japan Exchange Group, Inc. delivered a keynote speech during the afternoon session, which was also followed by panel discussions covering “Stewardship code and dialogue between companies and investors,” and “International <IR> Framework and corporate reporting practice.” A number of experts and scholars attended the symposium and carried out heated discussions and in-depth communications until the closing time.
