Kingdom Internal Auditors

The  Ministry of Commerce and Investment and the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA) are having to get to grips with the significant changes under the new Saudi Company law affecting how entities in Saudi Arabia are formed and regulated, against a background where Saudi Arabia is seeking to encourage more foreign investment in line with the National Transformation Plan 2020 and the Saudi Vision 2030, which are Saudi Arabia’s roadmap to diversify its economy and address the challenges brought by low global energy prices.

At this prestigious 2 day conference you will be exploring the key areas of internal audit that is currently revolutionising the audit space in the MENA region. Here you will examine groundbreaking approaches such as the evolving role of internal auditors, auditing for VAT, geopolitical risks, talent management and IT audit.
