      INTERNATIONAL. In a groundbreaking alliance between the 320-member, Beirut-based Union of Arab Banks (UAB) and the Miami-based Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS), the global leader in anti-money laundering training and certification, the UAB and ACAMS will conduct their first money laundering and terrorist financing conference in Dubai on 9-11 December 2007.

      Drawing attendees from around the world, and particularly from the countries of Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Morocco, and Egypt, the conference will focus on the best practices for implementing money laundering controls in financial institutions and other businesses in the region.

      "We greatly welcome this alliance with ACAMS, as they have established a strong international community for individuals and institutions who are driven by excellence in anti-money laundering practice," said Dr Joseph Torbey, CEO of the UAB.

      "The UAB and ACAMS are two powerful, dynamic organisations that have taken a premier leadership role in the world effort to crack down on financial crime, an issue of primary importance to the Arab banking sector."

      "Working with the Union of Arab Banks to present this conference is a significant step for ACAMS as we build from our base of MENA members to provide the top resources for AML professionals in this region," said Gregory Calpakis, CAMS Executive Director of ACAMS. "With our vast experience in conducting world-class conferences and seminars, we are certain that our alliance with the UAB will set a new standard for conferences in an area that is so critical to businesses and regulators all over the globe."

      The three-day conference will feature more than 20 top regional and world experts to share their insights, experiences, and best practices in general sessions and panel discussions including:

      - Mohammad Baasiri, Secretary of the Special Investigation Commission for Fighting Money Laundering at the financial intelligence unit in Lebanon and Chairman of the US-MENA Private Sector Dialogue (PSD).
      - Adel Hamad Al-Qulish, Executive secretary, Middle East and North Africa Financial Action Task Force (MENAFATF), Bahrain.
      - Richard Small, Global Anti-money Laundering Leader, GE Money, and one of the leading world experts on money laundering issues.

      There will be an ACAMS certification examination preparation seminar held on-site in Arabic that week and candidates will be able to schedule their examinations in Dubai at the computer-based testing centre. The 9 December 2007 marks the release of the examination in Arabic. In addition, the conference will host an exhibition hall where suppliers of leading AML services and technology can present their software, products, and professional services to conference attendees.

      Immediately following the UAB/ACAMS conference, the UAB in conjunction with the US Department of the Treasury will lead the third in a series of private sector dialogues. At this meeting, which will also be held at the Al Habtoor Grand Resort, representatives from the US Treasury will meet with financial institutions in the region to discuss joint efforts to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.

      "ACAMS is thrilled to be working with such an outstanding organisation as the UAB to establish a presence in one of the world's fasting growing banking regions," said Chairman of the ACAMS Advisory Board, John J Byrne, CAMS.

      "As Dubai is becoming a vital regional and world financial centre, we want to engage early with representatives from financial institutions, businesses, and government agencies in this region to create a core community of individuals and institutions who are committed to the fight against financial crime."
