Tim Ryan, PwC US Chairman and Senior Partner, and Maria Castañón Moats, US Assurance Leader, introduce PwC's 2017 quality report and discuss PwC's commitment to audit quality.

In a world that is changing rapidly, audit quality is a journey—not a destination. Each year we take action so that our audits continue to meet the challenges of evolving risks to reliable financial reporting, including changes to accounting standards, stakeholder expectations, and the business and regulatory environments in which we operate. We also assess our performance and learn from our experiences so that we can identify where changes will further enhance the quality of our audits.
