Question 2 (word limit: maximum 800 words)
China’s rapid economic growth in the past decades has amazed the rest of the world.
China’s influence on the world’s economy continues to increase.
China fully understands that a sound financial reporting system plays a key role in the
process of economic development. The Chinese Ministry of Finance (MOF) has set itself
the objectives of fostering investors’ confidence in financial information, increasing
transparency of financial reporting, and harmonising Chinese national accounting
standards with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs).
Since then, China has already made significant progress in harmonising Chinese
accounting standards with IFRSs.

Evaluate the benefits for Chinese Accounting Standards (CAS) to converge with IFRS.
