    On behalf of the Department of Economic Development (DED) in Dubai and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), it is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 2017 ACFE Fraud Conference Middle East, being held 29-31 January 2017. The conference will be held at Atlantis, The Palm Hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

    The purpose of the three-day conference is to enrich fraud detection and prevention through the involvement of international expertise and best practices. The conference will cover a variety of anti-fraud topics including cybersecurity, accounting fraud and data analytics.

    As the government body entrusted to set and drive the economic agenda of the emirate of Dubai, DED supports the structural transformation of Dubai into a diversified, innovative service-based economy that consistently improves the business environment and accelerates productivity growth. The various business units and agencies in DED focus on developing economic plans and policies, identifying and supporting the growth of strategic sectors, and providing services to domestic and international investors and businesses.

    The strategies and activities of the DED Group are guided by the wise directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to keep the emirate topmost in the ease of doing business, in addition to making it a highly advanced digital economy that ensures competitive and sustainable growth.

    The Internal Audit sector in DED monitors the governance and management processes within the organisation to optimise resources as well as benefits for all external and internal stakeholders. The sector advises the management and employees on the best means to uphold integrity and accountability, mitigate risks, improve efficiency of operations and finances, and ensure full compliance with the laws and regulations.

    Our support to the ACFE Fraud Conference Middle East is part of our strong commitment to promoting the exchange of critical knowledge on fraud prevention and competitive business practices among professionals worldwide. We would be delighted to have you present at this conference to learn about the latest techniques and tools in the fight against fraud.
