11th FEBRUARY 2013

The Serious Fraud Office is proud to be hosting an Economic Crime Seminar on 11th February 2013. This seminar will provide a greater understanding of the impacts of economic crime internationally and within the New Zealand economy. This is a unique chance to hear from a number of international speakers with various fields of expertise within economic crime.

The event provides an opportunity for networking with the New Zealand business, legal, accounting, banking, fraud prevention and law enforcement communities. You will also be able to meet delegates from international economic crime agencies who will be in New Zealand attending the inaugural Economic Crime Agencies Network conference organised by the SFO following this seminar.

We hope you or your colleagues will join us for this exciting event.
