Macek re-appointed to NZ accounting standards body

Commerce Minister Lianne Dalziel today announced the re-appointment of Charles Macek as the Australian member of the New Zealand Accounting Standards Review Board (ASRB) from 11 September 2006 through to 10 December 2007. This aligns with Charles Macek’s term as Chair of the Australian Financial Reporting Council (FRC).

“Cross-membership between the FRC and the ASRB assists in creating a seamless trans-Tasman business environment by establishing a single set of trans-Tasman accounting standards and also enhances the scope for New Zealand and Australia to influence the development of international accounting standards,” Lianne Dalziel said.

The Chair of the ASRB, Warwick Hunt, is a member of the FRC.
