Emiratis have sought elite audit duties as part of a plan to increase the level of Emiratisation at the Financial Audit Authority to 80 per cent in the next three years, an official said.
Abdullah Mohammad Ghobash, director general of the Financial Audit Authority, said UAE was rated as one of the least corrupt countries in the Middle East and North Africa by the Berlin-based Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2019.
“Fraud and corruption on public money in the government sector reached almost zero. The level of defence is very strong. We have a plan to increase the level of Emiratisation in the authority to 80 per cent in the next three years,” Ghobash said during the fifth edition of the Fraud Conference Middle East which began at Madinat Jumeirah on Sunday.
“The authority provides training courses for employees of government and semi-government entities to refine their skills in the field of fraud,” Ghobash added.
The three-day conference organised by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA-Dubai) in cooperation with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), drew 400 experts in the anti-fraud sector, including a group of accounting experts and specialists in internal auditing, governance and anti-fraud investigation.
