    It is with great delight that I invite you to attend the 2018 ACFE Fraud Conference Middle East in Abu Dhabi between the dates of 25 February and 27 February, 2018. In a continuum of the previous efforts engaged within the UAE since 2016 to annually host this event where likeminded professionals meet and share their experiences, knowledge and ideas, the Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority (ADAA) is proud to host this third edition, held in the month that was decreed as “Innovation Month” within the UAE. It is thus only reasonable to expect from this conference held in the nation where creativity and innovation are strongly encouraged and rewarded, to provide a platform for innovation in the areas of fraud prevention, corruption and ethics reinforcement.

    ADAA has strived since its inception to bring more in depth awareness about governance measures and to take a pole position in related efforts. Thus, driven by the UAE's regional leadership with regard to governance in both, the public and private sectors, the Abu Dhabi government has instilled and demonstrated over time a sustained commitment to enhancing the application of corporate governance standards and practices.

    The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners in this context has proven to be a source in terms of administrating the Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) Exam to provide the professionals who meet the industry accepted education and experience requirements with a credential to confirm the breadth of their skillsets and knowledge, and by providing continuous knowledge on related topics that help shape the profession today. The ACFE themed their 28th Annual Global Fraud Conference held in Nashville Tennessee last June as the harbor where heroes unite. And it is indeed this perspective that we have of those who have made it their mission and dedicated their careers to combat fraud and prevent corruption. I conclude with a quote by HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates: “History does not create heroes; rather, heroes are the true creators of history”.

    Looking forward to seeing you at this important event.

    Yours sincerely,

    Hamad Al Hurr Al Suwaidi,
    Abu Dhabi Accountability Authority
