Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

international Central and Eastern Europe Internal Audit Conference is over, just as the centerpiece of celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the Czech Institute of Internal Auditors.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everybody who took part in this event. We believe that the conference has been beneficial and besides providing you with interesting information and new contacts, it could also offer a pleasant experience and help you recharge some of the so needed energy, which was also its goal.

The conference was held under the auspices of the Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic and the Czech Chamber of Commerce.


For each participant of the international conference the certificate was issued. If you have not picked up the certificate on the spot in the Top Hotel, it is still available for you at Mrs. Škvorová from the Czech Institute of Internal Auditors.
