Along with its fast economic growth, China’s financial markets are growing very fast. As a result, more companies go public either inside or outside China; particularly many Chinese companies have gone IPOs in the US. One important factor of the developments of financial markets and particularly IPOs of companies is the accounting and auditing standards, regulations and practices. Many international investors always have concerns about financial reports of Chinese companies. They often wonder whether these numbers in the quarterly/annual financial reports are reliable. In this special seminar, Dr. Pin Xia will review the evolution and latest developments of China’s accounting and auditing standards and practices. In particular, he will use some cases to demonstrate financial disclosure requirements of public-traded companies in China and how they will be audited.

Dr. Pin Xia is the Professor and Dean of the School of Business Administration at Hubei University, China. He received his Ph. D. in Accounting from Huhan University. He worked for more than 10 years as governmental auditing officer before he became a professor. He has been a partner of a CPA firm in China and has helped many Chinese and foreign companies in their compliance of accounting/auditing standards.

The seminar is organized by the Center for the Study of Minority and Small Business and the Department of Business Administration at UWest.
