Forum to put spotlight on forensic accounting
Manama, November 11, 2013
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.
Last year's edition provided an introductory overview of the concept of forensic accounting and fraud examination to more than 40 delegates working in financial, audit and legal sectors of business in Bahrain, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Based on the demand and feedback from participants, this year's edition will tackle international money laundering and financial reporting fraud.
Participation has been confirmed from ministries, banks, insurance companies, accounting and auditing firms and legal firms in Bahrain.
This year's workshop will also be open to delegates from other GCC countries and the general public.
West Virginia University is a leader in forensic applications and education in accounting and fraud investigation, working with major government agencies and institutions.
Registration for the workshop is still ongoing and open to the general public.-TradeArabia News Service
