Later this month the Central Bank of Qatar and the Qatar Banking Training Institute are hosting a conference on the Prevention and Detection of Fraud and Money Laundering which is taking place at the Sheraton Hotel.
The increased liberalization of the World's financial markets, the removal of trade barriers and the speed and efficiency of financial transactions has made white collar crime and money laundering easier than ever before. The Middle East is no exception particularly when factors are considered such as its geographical position, the relationship between its commercial successes which are enhanced by the policies of deregulated financial markets along with excellent communication infrastructures and information technology (IT) facilities.
The event has attracted a very positive response with senior officials from numerous banks, financial institutions, investments and exchange houses already registered to attend. The Conference is also being sponsored by Qatar National Bank, Qatar Islamic Bank and Commercial Bank of Qatar.
The event comes at a critical time for the industry and will provide participants with the latest fraud prevention news delivered by some of the world's leading experts. No company, law firm, accountancy firm, bank or financial institution can afford to be associated, even unwittingly, with white-collar crime as the loss of confidence in a fraud-tainted institution can be disastrous. — (menareport.com)
