3 OPENING SPEECH Welcome to Tokyo Keizai University! Dear Colleagues, It gives us pleasure to tell you that we are very pleased to have you as attendants to the 3rd International Symposium on Accounting and Finance. Tokyo Keizai University Accounting Research Centre (ARC) was organized in 984 by accounting staff at Tokyo Keizai University, and has served as a forum for promoting accounting research and for interuniversity and international exchanges between accounting scholars with different cultural and methodological background. A characteristic of the researches at ARC is that the members have benefitted from the standpoints of Japan: Japanese views and methodologies of accounting on one hand, and the Japanese practice of accounting especially that of management accounting in Japanese large companies on the other hand. The members of ARC hope that the 3rd International Symposium on Accounting and Finance will be the starting point for further development of accounting research especially for further fruitful intellectual exchange between non-japanese and Japanese researchers. With warmest regards, Tokyo Keizai University Accounting Research Centre Makoto TAKEWAKI, Professor, Management accounting Takemi ONO; Professor, International accounting YukinariINOUE, Professor, Auditing Fumiyoshi WATANABE, Professor, Management accounting Hyonok KIM, Assobate Professor, Financial accounting Takeo ITABASHI, Lecturer, Tax accounting Hideharu OKUDA, Researcher, History of corporate accounting AkiyoshiTANAKA, Professor Emeritus Tomoko TAKAYAMA, Professor Emeritus Shigekazu KUKITA, Professor Emeritus th September, 24 Tokyo Keizai University Accounting Research Centre Yoshiaki JINNAI, Professor & Head of ARC, Methodology of accounting Tokyo Keizai University -7-34, Minami-cho, Kokubunji-shi, Tokyo Japan Tel Fax

4 Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues, 3 rd International Symposium on Accounting and Finance OPENING SPEECH Welcome to the 3rd International Symposium on Accounting and Finance Cohosted by Tokyo University of Keizai and the Association of Accounting and Finance Academicians. I am very happy to be with you in this symposium. The purpose of education and training is to create the conditions necessary for an advanced society. Globalization has changed the objectives of higher education. Therefore revisions are carried out in the training programs of Academic studies that serving the commercial life are discussed and sharing information on current issues is carried out in symposiums and congresses. I wish this Symposium will bring solutions of the problems encountered in the field of education and integration. In the process of education the duty of AAFA has published "Journal of Accounting and Finance" every three months since 999 to perform its duty in order to add value to education process. By AAFA as well as its various national panels, international congresses, conferences and symposia were organized. In recent years, the international activities can be listed as follows. - The Balkan Countries st Internatıonal Conference On Accountıng AND Audıtıng was held 27 in İstanbul Cohosted by Trakya University And AAFA. - 2th World Congress Of Accounting Historians was held 28 in İstanbul Cohosted by AfyonKocatepe University and Marmara University. - 2nd Balkans and Middle East Countries Conference on Accounting and Auditing History was held 2 in İstanbul - The st International Symposium on Accounting and Finance was held 22 in Gaziantep Cohosted by Gaziantep University And AAFA. - The 2nd International Symposium on Accounting and Finance was held May 24 in Bursa Cohosted by Uludag University And AAFA. In the same year that allows us to be here today, I present my sincere thanks to "3rd International Symposium on Accounting and Finance" co-chairman, Mr. Yoshiaki Jinnai and Tokyo Keizai University. Dear Colleagues, Accounting practices must be made with the principle of public disclosure and social responsibility. Primary responsibility of business and accounting managers is to prepare and report true and fair information. At this point Auditing is a question of accuracy and appropriateness. But also the quality and reliability of audit activity should be questioned. Global economic crisis drew the attention to accounting and audit standards. In the new and rapidly-globalized economic order in which competitive conditions have become heavier, accounting, financial reporting and auditing have important functions in the

5 development of both enterprises and economies. Today it became more evident that a sound and reliable recording and auditing system is one of the basic elements of a strong economy. I believe that today a good and powerful management approach can easily overcome the crises. What I mean by a good management is the institutional management in which transparent financial information is produced and audit mechanism functions well. Capital market investments which have increased due to globalization and technological development further emphasized the importance of accounting and financial information. Transparent, understandable, reliable, comparable and timely organization of financial information is very important for enlightening the public. I believe that this conference will make important contributions to the development of the recording and auditing culture, and to the scientific research. I would like to extend my thanks to all of those who have contributed to this conference which I believe will be beneficial and appropriate in terms of both its content and timing. This congress gives us opportunity to derive benefit from the papers presented by different countries academics. I hope that there will be such events in the future as well. I hope this Symposium achieves its objectives. I would like to present my personal respects and on behalf of AAFA to Mr. Yoshiaki JINNAI for allowing the organization of the Symposium, the organizing committee chairman Mr. Mehmet OZBIRECIKLI and to all the participants. th September, 24 Prof. Ümit GÜCENME GENÇOĞLU Chair of Association of Accounting and Finance Academicians Uludag University, Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences
