DeFreitas & Associates (D&A) was a proud participant at the ICAEC-IFRS Foundation Workshop held at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium at the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB) in St. Kitts & Nevis from May 16 to 20, 2011.

Accounting practitioners from across the OECS were in attendance for a workshop that was aimed at not only strengthening the Institute of Chartered Accountants of the Eastern Caribbean (ICAEC) but also enlightening participants of new International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS's) for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SME's).

Stan DeFreitas, Associate Consultant, who represented D&A at the workshop commented that "the workshop was informative and valuable to all practitioners as new standards will have an impact on the level and quality of work we provide for clients in the future."

Other collaborating institutions for this workshop were The World Bank and the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation.  D&Awould like to commend the ECCB and its staff for coordinating a first-class event at its facilities.
