The Royal University for Women (RUW) in co-operation with West Virginia University, US, is conducting its second annual three-day workshop on 'Forensic Accounting and Fraud Examination' in Bahrain.
Being held under the patronage of Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) Governor Rasheed Al Maraj, the event is scheduled for November 17 to 19 at the RUW campus in Riffa.
